Beautifully Vulnerable Self-Portraits (16 photos)


Kalie Garrett is a 19-year-old photographer who takes such vulnerable self-portraits, you can’t help but get emotional when you look at them. Rather than describe them myself, here are some touching testimonials left on her Flickr page:

“You probably know by now how much I adore your work. I mean, your photography is like a drug to me. I can get lost in your stream so easily and just look for hours and hours on end. The kind of emotion you show in your photos is unique and different from any other photos I’ve seen.”

“From the moment i first discovered your work, I was incredibly inspired. You were the one who showed me what emotion is. I look at a photo and listen to the song in the description.. I’ll look at the picture for like ten minutes because it is so incredible how you can make me feel your emotion.”

“They want to make me rip my heart out and tear it to shreds, yet at the same time put my hand to my chest and hear my heart beat. Because your photos make me feel alive. They flood my eyes with the most honest emotions that sometimes I can’t even look, that or I can’t pull my eyes away.”
