Coping with depression , my Dark Arts
ed with depression for a long while , then started to express those dark thoughts in my photos. I would spiral down into a dip , then by making images , usually selfies on how i felt about myself at that time , I would find i would be in the darkness shorter times. I also started to write stories that intertwined with the created photos , and i could bring all the feelings out and not let those nasty thoughts to fester in the dark and in silence.
I know its not for everyone. But I needed to see these disabling thoughts , i wanted to analyze and drag them into the light and then look at them , like facing ones fears.
I still get down , but i can cope with it now , I found a tool that works for me , although frightening and very profound and hectically honest , but it works , slowly the dark arty photos are taking on a bit of beauty .. for even in dispare and darkness is there beauty , you just have to look a bit harder
Allow me to have one delusion , A delusion of total devoted unwavering faith in my works , the wisdom to know what to take from criticisms to improve my art , and also when to stop irritating those big photographers whose egos are so big , you need a wide angle lens
