In this series of images, originally presented in combination with a variety of sound recordings, I explore my experience of tinnitus. I document its impact on my day-to-day life and and visualize how it complicates my relationship with silence. I attempt to describe photographically a subjective internal world in which the perception of sound is fundamentally altered by employing a restricted colour palette, and through the use of real and imagined scenarios. Lastly, I reflect on how it has affected my mental health and sense of identity in a sequence of self-portraits which aim to evoke a feeling of both containment and fragmentation.
