Depression

What does depression feel like?

We are told it varies a lot between individuals. But if you wanted to visualise “the feeling of depression” in photographic images, how could you do it?

Location photo shoot arranged by PortraitX.

Model: Samantha Akasha Asylum

The photos of Samantha by the window were taken using natural light coming through the window. For the other photos an additional speedlight with a grid was added to illuminate the model in “an appropriate manner”.
