Your Scars are Light by DrHouse88 Your Scars are Light by DrHouse88

We all have scars, inside and out. We have freckles from sun exposure, broken bones, wound scar, emotional trigger points, painful memories in the past or broken hearts.
However our scars manifest, we need not feel ashamed.

It is beautiful to have lived, really lived, and to have the marks to prove it. It’s not a competition—as in “My scar is better than your scar" - but it’s a testament of our inner strength.

It's the grace point between what hurts and what heals, between the shadow of tragedy and the light of joy. We may hurt, but we will heal and there’s beauty in our scars.

Great lighting, and I like how subtle the texture on the skin is. I think the artist statement is very well written and poetic, giving the piece a big push. Good job!

Gorgeous. I wonder, did you end up manipulating this in anyway? I mean outside of playing with contrasts and such. Either way it is an absolutely stunning image and a great concept. Thank you for sharing and congrats on the daily deviation!
