In the Mind of Another.
The inspiration for this series of photographs came to me a few years ago, when a dear friend was in an accident that led to a diagnosis of epilepsy. The idea was to portray how specific psychological disorders effect an individual through the artistic appeal of double exposure. Overall, these photographs are meant to have a dynamic view as representations of disorders that many have to live with every day. I chose this topic not only because my friend inspired me, but also because mental health is too often neglected and dismissed as frivolous. Mental health disorders effect many people I care about. It is also personal battle worthy of portrayal. Since this began in the small town of Vail, Colorado, the series begins with a piece from there, which inspired subsequent displays. Each photograph includes people living with the disorder being depicted and therefore, their personal details are kept anonymous.
