I had never photographed anyone else before or photographed in such low lighting conditions with fast movement so it was a challenge and although not all of the pictures turned out OK, I ended up taking over 200 that were half decent.

The Mind
Lost, lonely and afraid.  A series of self portraits depicting a life with mental illness.

If you or a loved one are suffering with mental health don't be afraid to speak out and get help.
