Art 3470: Digital Photography I
Digital Print; 8.5″ x 11″
This image is part of a series about depression and self-harm and how it affects people my age today. Self-destructive behavior and suicidal tendencies are very common and I want to show how painful and hard depression is to overcome. I wanted my pictures to be uncomfortable to look at, and I wanted the viewer to feel the pain and begin to understand depression and its effects on people’s lives better. Depression is a big issue in our society today. People make it off to be unimportant and don’t understand it and that pills aren’t the way to deal with this issue. There are better ways to deal with depression than using SSRIs, which aren’t even very effective and can cause even more problems in someone that takes them.
