The Hidden Mask Series (HMS) is about surviving prolonged severe physical/emotional trauma. Specifically C-PTSI; Complex Post Trauma Injury (not "disorder"). Derived from different contextual episodes (i.e. from being an armed robbery hostage to domestic violence to severe mental health conditons to surviving natural disasters etc.) over an extended period of time. The "masks" are primarily "selfies". Intended to at least partially represent some of the journey toward a functional, stable, healing.
