On display across our site, logic-defying images by photographer Suzie Larke aim to increase awareness and conversation about mental wellbeing.
Part of being human is to struggle.
Commonly our struggles with mental health are not outwardly apparent and can lead to people feeling isolated in their experiences.
Larke’s project Unseen uses fine art photography to depict the experiences of her subjects, helping them to express their own struggles.
Viewing the images, we are united in the knowledge that everyone goes through – and can overcome – struggle.
Larke uses constructed imagery, digitally stitching photographs together in such a way that they present as a single, untampered image, challenging our notion of reality.
By using ‘magical realism’ to transform photographs that take the everyday and skew it, she creates images that interpret the subjective experience of struggle.
