I was recently asked to write a "How To" on one of my pictures for Phlearn.com. You can find the article here:
Last year was a special year for me. In the first months I experienced my worst periods of anxiety and depression in a long time. Fortunately, I was able to get great professional help and made significant improvements during the year; going from crippling anxiety attacks to getting up on stage and doing a talk in front of hundreds of people at the Bielsko-Biala Foto Art Festival in November. Looking back at that time, and at the progress I’ve made since, I feel that this truly was a defining moment for me. And from that feeling came the inspiration for my next series of pictures.
Just like before, the theme is still my own inner life, thoughts and feelings; but from a different perspective. The most obvious difference is that these pictures are in color, but as the series grows, I hope that other, more subtle, differences will become clear.
Below are the first four works in the series.
I am very happy to once again be able to help Heads Up Guy with their campaign for Men’s Health Week. Men’s mental health is an important but often overlooked part of #MensHealthWeek, and an issue I care deeply for.
Please check out the campaign at https://headsupguys.org/together-we-can/, and take a moment to check out the rest of the site, it's a wonderful and important resource for those who are, or those close to someone who is, struggling with depression.
Back in 2013 I visited Shanghai for the Lumen Prize Exhibition. Now one of my pictures are back as a part of The 1x Decade exhibition at the Shanghai World Financial Center. The exhibition futures It features 68 of the best works from the past 10 years on 1x.com.
