It's not an uncommon practice for collaborators to ask each other to conjure powerful, sometimes painful, memories to evoke emotion they wish to portray within their work.
The fine arts photography and modeling community have aptly coined this intimate and vulnerable collaborative experience as a "Trauma Shoot".
An abundance of trauma resides within the arts community and Perrin often receives messages from those identifying with her personal story or requesting a Trauma Shoot.
As a suicide survivor and advocate for mental health awareness, Perrin strives to speak openly and honestly about her relationship with trauma and hopes to contribute to the normalization of conversation regarding mental health.
