I have been exploring ways of photographically representing mental health. Mental health is a very current and significant issue that is very recently being brought to light more than ever before.1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year. However mental illnesses are often still considered a taboo subject and this is something I have intended to challenge.


These images are based on a variety of mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, ADHD and anorexia. Each image has been created and based upon a particular real life, and first hand experience from a diverse range of people with these conditions.
