Photo taken by Janna, who has suffered from panic attacks for the last year that have left her shaken and insecure. However, through her anxiety she has met some really nice people who have similar conditions and this has really helped her in realizing that she is not alone. It allowed her to understand her situation and mental illness more. She is currently in her final year of a Fine Art degree in Ireland and is using being creative to help release some of the pressures in her life.
About this photo: “This is an image I took from a video shoot I was doing called ‘Forgotten Space.’ It was shot in an abandoned house covered in graffiti. In the video she is trying to connect with the other character but it is not working. In the moment that you see in this photograph I wanted to capture her frustration and loneliness in an explosion of emotion.“
