Linda

As an adult Linda went from obese to anorexic. For the 10 years, previous to my photographing her, she worked with Dr. Ira Sacker. He referred her.

"I’ve always seen myself as a humongous whale. No matter how thin I was I only saw fat. "One day I looked at myself naked in front of the mirror. I looked like a holocaust victim. In the past I always saw myself as fat. All of a sudden, I saw I was skinny. Before, the mirror just lied along with me. There was no way to check that my feelings were being exaggerated in the mirror. The pictures opened the doorway.”

Once Linda saw herself she no longer had the strength to compulsively exercise. She started to look at her life, her disappointments and do something about them.
