Inner-conflict

Inner-conflict

Eva Merritt

Inner-conflict is not something I talk about as I tend to keep it to myself. However, through the medium of photography I have found an easier way of expressing my emotions. Inner-conflict is something I, along with many others, have and it is sometimes very difficult to deal with. For me, it is all down to specific emotions I have which I keep to myself and don’t show. Bottling it all up is one of the worst things to do and I feel that in these images I have allowed myself to let my emotions free without having to explicitly speak about them. In these images my aim was to convey feelings I have which cause my inner-conflict such as pain, frustration, anger, isolation and sensuality. These emotions all cause me to ask questions like - What could I do better? Am I enough? Why am I like this? And so on and so forth. I know myself that I am not the only one who feels this way as we all experience inner-conflict at some point, it’s just how different people deal with it. Creating images is my way of dealing with it. Here I have expressed my inner-most feelings and people will interpret them in their own way, however they want. Don’t let your feelings get to you. Express them in your own way.
