I Use Photography As Therapy To Work Through My Mental Illness

ADVERTISEMENT

I’m a conceptual photographer based in Brighton, England. I’ve been living with a mental illness for most of my life. I believe in some ways that it has made me more creative and I’ve learnt to channel my emotions through my work.

I started experimenting with Photoshop and taught myself to create these surreal images that can help me explain my emotions.

Although personal experiences are a frequent theme in my work, I also enjoy creating surreal fantasy scenes, often with fairies, or miniature people.

I’m so grateful for the support my work has had and I hope to raise awareness of mental health issues!

I really like them, the alice is my favorite. Very creative pieces and I hope they have helped, even in some small way. I deal with issues of my own and have found creative writing helps me so I can see how this would help as well. Keep doing what you do, sometimes the most tortured soul can create the most beautiful art.
