Description

For my photography module I was struggling to find a theme but I knew I wanted to do something regarding mental health. So I decided that this project’ s main theme is the glamorisation of mental illnesses by our culture and media. I have tried to recreate and capture sort of mocks of different ways mental health is depicted around the media and its beautification. The plastic nylon/ cling film is meant to represent the suffocation that people experience during anxiety attacks or/and the psychological burden that weighs people down when are in a state of depression. In some of the landscapes I used again the nylon and a prism to kind of blur and distort the image, as things can be distorted sometimes if we see them from a different perspective.
