With this project I wanted to bring to light the emotions and struggles that sufferers of mental illness face everyday. Instead of me trying to replicate what others feel, I decided to go out into the world and collect artistic material created by mentally ill individuals. Poetry, photography, illustrations.
These are all mediums that many people use to express their emotions, so why not the mentally ill? My zine is focused around portraying the emotion in their words and their pictures, and visually showing the viewer the effects of mental illness. Now you can walk a mile in their shoes.
