I have used my photographic practice in order to share my story of a personal battle with an anxiety disorder. I have created a small insight to a world engulfed by anxiety, with feelings of fear, mistrust and unease around every corner. I have displayed this through the medium of self-portraiture, where the mask symbolises how anxiety can take away your identity, combined with representation of emotion through still life and landscape photography, a coping mechanism developed to handle my disorder. In a world full of hidden battles, I hope sharing mine will help raise awareness about the illness and encourage others to tell their stories.
