Lifeline is a series of self-portraits that refer to the personal connection between my sister and I, amongst her daily struggle with anxiety and depression. The constructed images show the simplicity from the studio atmosphere, maintaining the focus on the subjects within. The aim with the multi-coloured backgrounds varying in each image, shows the intention of re-creating the disability as being multi-faced and different every minute. Therefore, showing that anxiety and depression are never just black and white, but constantly changing depending on the day, emotion, and person experiencing it. Compositionally, the subjects display the support given to the sufferer on a daily basis; support can come from all angles and is never the same.
