Sometimes, you need to lose yourself to find yourself. You need to shrivel so you can then open your heart and mind. You need to die inside to bloom on the outside. Hit rock bottom to push yourself up. And realize that when madness strikes, it also makes us rise again. Because it makes you rethink, grow and create a new life, a new love, and renew hope. Insanity doesn't have to be the end. It can be a (re)starting point. Photography by Thomas von Aagh. Hair and make up by Alexander Hofmann.
