Project Sanity

Project Sanity is a series of 12 self-portraits which examine my personal journey through the 2020 global pandemic. Each image demonstrates a different activity taken up during this difficult time aimed at alleviating the subsequent mental ill health as a result of the world closing in to stop the spread of the virus. Since the start of the pandemic significant numbers of adults in the UK have admitted to suffering with some type of mental illness. Due of this, websites such as the NHS and Mind have advised people to keep active to help boost their self-esteem and resilience. Even though the Covid-19 pandemic has been a global disaster, documenting this time when the world came to a halt in order to embed positive memories arising out of shared hardship is the aim of this project and the challenge to others to embrace both change and continuity post-pandemic.
