A woman explores her lights and shadows: A 30 year photo story project.

All photos by Raoul Manuel Schnell

We explore a thirty year project of the evolution of Woman in all her facets when she is left abandoned and the evolution of Her rising. This is not only a universal story of hope and resurrection as old as time but it comes from my personal story of being a box baby and living a life of total lies. Truth prevailed and out came the light.
