My current body of work explores mental illness, in particular my own personal battle with depression. The addition of text to accompany my images i feel helps me to communicate my experiences. This project is very much a working progress as i continually look for ways to represent my depression visually. Loneliness is a recurring theme within my work as i find it heavily links with my depression. For this project I have mainly focused around self portraits. The aim of my work is to hopefully get more males of my age to open up about their mental illness as it is still a subject that many people of my age do not talk about.
