A Mental Illness Self Portrait Series - Depression

If you are a follower of the blog or myself you will know of my Mental Health struggles and that photography is one of my passions I more or less rediscovered during this difficult time in my life.

Over the last few months, I have been exploring the art of photography and taking pictures of as much stuff as possible to figure out what I like taking pictures of to narrow down an area of expertise.

One of those areas is self-portraits. Now I have taken pictures of myself for a very long time and its no secret I am a very vain person, you only have to have a look at my instagram account to see that. 

With this self-portrait series, I wanted to tell a story and get across a specific message with each picture and the series as a collection.

This series I wanted to showcase some of the internal dialogue during a depressive episode and what it is like behind closed doors, the side of me very few see.
