Woman Takes Pictures Of Herself Every Day To Document The Worst Year Of Her Life

The Internet has really changed the way that many of us look at pictures. In addition, the fact that we are carrying around a high-quality camera with us at all times also changes the way that we take pictures. I can remember having to beg my mother to allow me to take a picture with her camera. The fact was, she had to buy the film, take the film to the store to have it developed and then hope that the pictures turned out in the process. Regardless of whether they were good or bad, it was money out of her pocket.

That isn’t true today. We can take as many pictures as we want with our digital device and, quite honestly, we don’t look at many of them ever again. Selfies are also very popular. It is a type of picture that wasn’t taken all that often before we had the electronic devices available. Yes, we are accustomed to taking pictures of ourselves and we may do so every day but have you ever stopped to think about the differences that you would see in those pictures? Very few of us put the pictures together but this woman did so and the results are telling.

They also say that ‘a picture is worth 1000 words’ so a video must be worth millions of words, to say the least. When you first start watching the video below, you might be touched with how beautiful the young woman is but don’t take your eyes off the screen for just a moment. It is a video that has a purpose, not just one that shows the face of a woman that you don’t know. In reality, it’s a face that many of us know although we don’t get to see behind the scenes on many occasions.

The video was created by the Croatian government responding to a danger that women live with on a daily basis. It was entitled “One Photo a Day in the Worst Year of My Life”. This is so worth watching and if you are not touched by the end of it, you really need to watch it again and figure out why.
