Obviously, when you think depression, you automatically think it’s all sadness and sadness only but this is untrue. I hardly ever feel just sad when my bad days strike but I feel nothing,there’s no way nothing can be represented other than the emptiness that suffocates me, surrounds me and forces me to stay in bed or pushes me into the darkest part of myself or scares me through my reflection that stares emptily at me.
How can nothing be represented? So I had a light bulb moment where I could represent depression through a thing that makes me forget about all that, a way for me to express the madness that goes through my head.
I want to represent what I think depression would look like in black and white because frankly there the only colours I feel. Where I will show the feelings of depression through my camera lens and black and white portraits of a few people who became my models: one of which was James Gibson: I wanted to show pain, escape, confusion, loneliness in suitable ways.
