Photos taken by Quantumphysica. In her words: “Last year was a hectic time for me, I got incarcerated (twice) and have been diagnosed with schizophrenia, malignant narcissism and mild DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder or Multiple Personality Disorder). The schizophrenia is most likely a hereditary condition, as there are more cases on my mother’s side of the family… as for the narcissism… I think I have always been like that. I share my head with a woman who refers to herself as The Riemann Hypothesis. I don’t know what she does, but apparently she does know everything I do. It is a confusing situation. I also study History of Art at the moment, but I used to be a Physics student. My psychosis turned my life upside down, and I had to abandon those dreams. Despite that, I will always love Physics. I still live at home and that’s not the easiest of situations for me, but I try to cope as good as I can.”
About these photos: “This first photo is me and Riemann, or Riemann and herself, I don’t know. I am not in my own eyes, it is odd to see that on a photo. We converse with each other at times, Riemann and I.
The second one… Sometimes I don’t recognize my own reflection.”
