We aim to publish meaningful stories of perseverance amidst mental health struggles.
This collection visually depicts both isolation and the oppressive mood that can seem such a barrier to communication and interaction with the outside world when an individual is experiencing depression and/or anxiety. These depict my own experience with the subject.
My own journey with mental health started when I found myself the victim of assault, and I had no perceived support network that I was able to share my experience with. Of course, I have since realised that I did have support from various quarters, and that in reality it was my inability to engage with my surroundings that was the issue.
I don’t really believe that any two people experience anything in exactly the same way, so the emphasis is on the mood evoked by the images – images are better for projection and empathy, after all – and so the descriptions are only my own perspective. Hopefully they will resonate with you, and perhaps even in a constructive way.
