Photo taken by n23art who has struggled with depression for much of his life. Most of the time it’s manageable, but there have been a few times when it has hit him very hard. He is originally from the UK, but currently lives in Thailand.
About this photo: “This photograph was taken in Chiang Mai, Thailand, in September 2012. This was a spontaneous idea I had during a photo shoot. After a conversation with the model she told me that her day job was teaching, as a former teacher myself my first thought was “multitasking” and as women are supposedly better multitaskers it made sense. After the shoot I also started to think about the numerous multi limbed Hindu deities, so it became more like an avatar (in the true sense of the word).
I regretted the decision later after spending many, many hours on Photoshop trying to turn the concept into (some kind of) reality.”
