The “Internal Notebook” is a notebook of the emotional cries of children raised in abusive homes. I have taken portraits of them, along with the diaries and notebooks they have kept. I have also tried to show what their parents were like by arranging their childhood photographs and important possessions. It seemed to me that their parents were no different from the rest of us in thinking that we were normal parents.
They suffer depression, self-harm, dissociation, PTSD, and other ailments.
The people in this book do not only feel hatred and resentment toward their parents. There are those who feel anger at themselves, unchangeable sadness, and even question whether they must forgive their parents as they desperately keep themselves alive. So we can see that the ones who tormented them were not just their parents but other adults in society as well.
