Personal Experimentation

Over the last few months I experienced symptoms of depersonalisation – feeling disconnected from myself and everything around me. I experience this when my anxiety is heightened, and wanted to photograph this experience.

I have previously experimented with self portraits being out of focus, yet I feel this is more appropriate now than before. It represents trying get a grip of reality when instead you can’t seem to focus on anything around you.

For me the third photo in the series is slightly to out of focus, which leaves the viewer unable to make out what they are looking at. However, I was especially pleased with the second photo, using the colour of my hair a visual anchor within the images.
