                            This woman took a photograph of herself every day for a year, and the reason will break your heart

A young woman suffering domestic abuse took selfies of herself every day for a year in 2012 to document the physical effect of the abuse she endures. The abuse is clearly visible, and it only gets worse. The change in her visage is frightening and serves to stand as a powerful message for all. Her decline from palpable confidence to heartbreaking distress through open wounds sent tremors through social media making her video viral.

She stacked all the images together to create the time-lapse video "One Photo a Day in the Worst Year of My Life" as a plea against domestic violence.  

Smaller bruises grow to larger life-threatening injuries—making the viewers gasp in pain and agony and ends with an image of the woman holding a sign that reads, "Help me, I don't know if I will survive until tomorrow," in Serbian.

However, PetaPixel, a photography website, claims that all of the injuries seen in the video could have been created with film makeup, but no one knows for sure. More importantly, though that the girl solved her purpose through the video—makeup or not—because her message of creating awareness of the violence, immorality, and misfortune of domestic violence went viral alongside her video. 


Though the woman looks fine at first, as time goes on, severe bruises appear on her face and neck.

As the days pass, you can tell the woman begins looking sadder and sadder.
