Veronica is intelligent, and a good conversationalist on a variety of topics as her Sanskrit and Buddhist-inspired tattoos would suggest. I had spoken with her a few times in the months prior to her photo sitting. Throughout that time I think street life had broken some of her mind and body, for as I was taking these photos she was complaining of bugs crawling inside and up and down her skin, which she was certain were there despite my protestations. She'd point to a bit of dust on her arm and, exasperated at my lack of perception, exclaim "See!" In short, this was not something I was trained for and at the time the situation was equal parts ridiculous and distressing. After some research I learned that such a sensation and hallucination is called delusional parasitosis and is a form of psychosis. I saw her some weeks later after the photos were made, and she seemed her rational self again.
