A little while ago I started a passion project with a few friends. It is a portrait series, accompanied by a few questions to get to know each of them a little more personally; I have focused it towards mental health and the reality of performing artists.
A world that I am surrounded by.
I see this reality affect the mental health of those close to me in varying degrees and capacities which can be devastating without the correct support network. I want to ignite the conversation of mental health awareness through the beauty and vulnerability of these images and the thoughtfulness of experienced words. I have created this project with the hope that others will find a parallel and recognise there is always someone that understands, someone that will listen. So pursue this growing desire with me, to express and expose ourselves and honor we are one and the same.
