through my eyes: a cut (post 4)

a cut photographyIt’s not uncommon for household chores to lead to minor abrasions, cuts, burns, and various other injuries. It just so happened that, as I was starting to photograph for this series, I cut my wrist pretty well doing those wonderful household chores. So I decided to do a little documentation – the changes, time to time, of the body…the physical healing the human body is capable of. It’s an amazing attribute of this mortal flesh.

This post is a continuation of the through my eyes photography series. The first post, including an introductory essay, can be found here. The other posts in the series can be found here. I hope you enjoy them!

“I hurt myself today
to see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
the only thing that’s real

what have I become
my sweetest friend
everyone I know
goes away in the end.”
~ excerpt from Hurt, Trent Reznor (you can see the video for Hurt here, performed by the writer, and it’s worth the watch/listen)

The incomparable Johnny Cash covered Reznor’s song…and it is magnificent.
