Statement: In my life, I struggle with depression and dissociation. My body is in the physical world, but my brain often tends to drift away. By blocking out the face and head, I dehumanize the subject of the photographs, only leaving the hands to represent the small pieces of humanity a person with depression can afford to show the world. The empty spaces are left to make the viewer ponder where the subject’s mind is in relation to their body. They also express the loneliness felt in day-to-day life. We pass hundreds of strangers a day, without remembering any details other than the fact that they have a human form.
