You wakeup. Rules of vanity are immediately conquering your mind. Your inside is already burning with a small flame in the breakfast table. You go on but imperfection is the only thing you see in the mirror. Nightmares of the night haunt you during the day and you just want to take a nap and see dreams of butterflies. But whats stopping you? Is it time to break the chains of beauty?
Petri Damstén is a photographer, digital artist and nerd from Kuopio, Finland. The passion for photography started after he retired from his day job as a software engineer. He explores the dark side of life in his art. Images are often moody, surreal and distressing. Self-portraiture has always played a big part in Petri’s pictures. So he has experience of being behind the camera as well as being in front of it. He has won many awards in Finland and internationally, including Fotofinlandia finalist and PX3 Gold in Paris, France.
