Neal Schlosburg | Artist | Portrait Photographer

Artist Statement

Sharing emotions and troubling stories with family members or close friends can be difficult for many people. We are afraid of what others will think of us. Society tells us not to burden others with our trouble. That was my experience growing up.

Like many, I internalized them, blew them off when I needed to share them, and even told them to inappropriate people. My moods, my outlook on day-to-day life, and my relationships were affected by this. Some swear they will take these feelings and stories to their grave. I almost did. Unfortunately, some do sooner than later.

People tell me their personal stories. I listen to them without judgment. In telling their stories, I use unique images. My Picture Tells A Story is about sharing your personal and emotional stories. Sharing feelings can and should be safe



Just like children, emotions heal when they are heard and validated.

I speak because I can, to anyone I trust enough to listen.
