Everyday there is something else…

Everyday there is something else… is a set of 18 self-portraits that aim to reveal the battle with my mental health during this pandemic and throughout the many lockdowns necessitated by the global health crisis. The photographs were made during uncontrollable anxiety attacks which took place just before events I had planned for myself. Suffering from poor mental ill health just isn’t loud screaming or excessive crying as some of the stereotypical ideas claim, it can be feeling completely empty, numb, and useless. There is a persistent exhaustion and frustration borne of battling your own thoughts. For the duration of this global pandemic many individuals have been affected in relation to their mental health, especially students. Making the invisible more visible is a step toward understanding more fully the impact of what we have collectively experienced on certain individuals this past year.
