DESCRIPTION

Confession is often a reference to wrongdoing or "the concept of sin", but it the broader context, confessions can be any revelation. The "act" of confessing allows one to examine something that has been hidden because of shame or inadequacy and this causes psychological blockage. By introducing them later in our lives, we can reexamine experiences with maturity - hopefully releasing them and the stress they cause. Over 750 images were sent in from around the world. Many disturbing, many unique, many revealing dark and haunting images of sexual misconduct, infidelity, rage, tortue, mutiliation and violet victimization of women and children, even scenes of murder. When everything can be considered "art" these days, we looked for work that had levels of satisfaction, work that represented depth and honesty. We applaud all the artists for their unique expressions of Confession.
