My second idea is to produce a series of images, each representing a different mental illness or problem.
This should hopefully raise not just awareness for those going through a hard time, but understanding of what it is they’re going through and how it feels.
For example, things such as anxiety could be made without the use of photoshop, using many models all sectioning out a target in the centre and peering down, intimidating them. Whereas other images such as bipolar would need the aid of photoshop to replicate the model in both happy and depressed moods. Most of my images will require photoshop and planning before shooting.
