This is the trailer for the project “I can hear you now” created during my MA Photography at Falmouth University.
I this work, I am interested in exploring the ways in which photography can be used as a tool for psychological research, investigating the inner world of the portrayed individuals and viewers. In my portraiture and videography, I am particularly interested in the impact who of anxiety disorders and panic attacks. As a sufferer of anxiety disorders, I often feel the urge to scream out in pain but this inner pressure is never expressed. Trauma, negative emotions, bad memories are something we all share and “the scream” becomes a constructive and cathartic act that allows all individuals involved in my research to release them. Our lives are managed by social norms that stigmatise these behaviours and my aim is to create a constructive dialogue around mental health issues that are still considered taboo in our culture.
