With this project I have tried to capture some of the rapid mood changes, both happy and sad, of bipolar and other mental health disorders. In its exaggerated mood swings it covers the stresses of life in today’s world.
Some of the stresses and joys that I have included in these images cover excesses in drink, drugs, debts, depression, suicide, nightmares, gambling, cancer and other illnesses. The photographs also show poverty, wealth and some of the subliminal images used in advertising today. There are also some more peaceful images of relaxing moments with the pleasures in life.
Most of these photographs are ( In Camera ) double exposures, they may be physically and mentally diffecult to look at.
Photographs taken in 2012
