This is a portrait of a young woman who had to cope with the year-long effects of her burn-out.

The photo was made for ‘De herontdekking van het lichaam’ (The Rediscovery of the Body) and is written by Bregje Hofstede. She was struggling with a burn-out for years and wrote a book about this personal topic. This is one shot from a series that feature as part of the book.

The portrait is in black and white and shot on film (mid format). For more information and pictures about the project, please check ‘De Herontdekking’ on the photographers website http://willemieke-kars.format.com/bregje-hofstede
