I cope with clinical depression and live open about it. At an earlier age, I felt like I was a burden and stigmatized by society for not being "normal" like everyone else. I decided to do this series about my journey and record a very vulnerable photo journal to show that people can heal from the stigmata from depression of what society thinks depression looks like. I'm an artist so why not paint and photograph what is beautiful to me. Over the course of a year, this series would become my next creative series Lost in Transformation. The series was selected into a prestigious historical art society and will be featured in Paris, France on the Champs-Elysées. My work will go in the history catalog among other artists such as Salvador Dalì, Marcel Duchamp, Marc Chagall, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matissé, Paul Cezzane, and many more.
There has nevermore been a higher pressing point for an original approach to discovering purpose and meaning in our increasingly interwoven lives.
