Change can often be a difficult thing for one to endure, particularly when there is no clear outcome in sight. When change occurs in multiple areas of life simultaneously, the result can be catastrophic for the individual. Include the struggles that depression and anxiety introduce, and some would say that things may become too difficult to bear.
Unsettled is a body of work which explores feelings of inner turmoil, unexpected life-altering changes, and the chaos accompanied by the uncertainty of complex emotions and situations. Through an examination of the body, I utilize macro elements, points of tension, and disoriented views to attempt to put into words emotions and the effects of mental illnesses which are often too difficult to explain to those outside the experience. By presenting these altered portraits, I hope viewers are able to relate their personal experiences to the sentiments expressed in my photographs.
