Overview



I have been living with depression for several years now, battling with emotional ups and downs. Since undergoing treatment, I started isolating my feelings from the surroundings. I am not sure if this is a side effect of the medication or simply a change in my psyche, but I have been in a constant state of calmness, grief and solitude. Such feelings are hard to articulate using words, which is why I choose to express them through photography, so as to reveal to the world my inner thoughts.
