cry·ing /ˈkrī-iNG/ - the act is defined as a complex secretomotor phenomenon characterized by the shedding of tears from the lacrimal apparatus, without any irritation of the ocular structures.In an age where nudity is less vulnerable than genuine emotions, I wanted to explore an aspect of peoples lives that are hidden.
These are the faces of the intentionally vulnerable. They’re showing you a part of themselves that is usually saved for their loved ones or even sometimes, just themselves.
You don’t know why they are crying, but you know that this is a rare look into a stranger’s most personal moments.
