In the Mind’s Eye

One of the problems with mental illness is that the symptoms are often not outwardly apparent. Through conceptual photography, this project is an attempt to transform my own personal experiences of depression into something more tangible. To create images that  promote a greater understanding of the spectrum of experiences of depression. To challenge the cliché ‘head in hands’ image that is often used to depict depression by the media. To raise awareness and break through stigma.
