My Pain

  • Photographer
    Gabriela Segura

This image is going to be part of a series that I am working on. All my life I felt trapped by my thoughts, trying to get everything in me to always be right. Thanks to art and imagination I could represent my deepest pain, the illness of my father, who was in a coma for six years. His body was there, but not his soul. This image is me, trying to live hidden, grabbing a body that did not recognize me anymore and that was almost impossible to let go.

Gabriela Segura was born in San José, Costa Rica. She is an electromechanical engineer, married and a mother of three. In 2015, she began her studies in photography and realized that this was her true passion. Little by little, she left her former job to devote herself completely to photography. Now she is a fine arts photographer who uses photoshop to create the emotions she feels inside and wants to share. Most of her images are self portraits because she wants to make her body move as her mind imagines the subject.
