Photo taken by 19 year old Christina Erb, who has been studying the art of photography in and out of school for the last 8 years. She suffers from anxiety due to stress and sleep deprivation.
About this photo: This photograph was part of my “Lyric Series,” which was a project from my black and white film class in school. The project was to take photos that said something about us. Music is a big part of my life. In order to incorporate that, I decided to use lyrics from 15 of my favorite songs and take photos that had to do with those lyrics, but also said something about my feelings towards aspects of my life or parts of my personality. The artist and lyrics that inspired this image were “Houdini” by Foster the People – “Sometimes I want to disappear.” In this photo, I wanted to show that sometimes, you just need to get away from everything going on around you and just…. disappear.
