I have always tried to capture my experience with Depression and Anxiety in writing, mostly through metaphor. I’ve thought that music might be a good way to convey it but that requires skill I don’t have. I do make extensive use of abstract visuals such as charts, graphs and diagrams to both represent it and cope with it. I’ve thought of using painting or graphic design … but again, the skills. But for some reason, I never thought of using photography until now.
I wonder if these images mean something to someone who has not experienced Depression or Anxiety, but they resonate deeply with me.
