OCTOBER 2018: MENTAL HEALTH

mental health (1)

Every living person on this planet has their own unique pair of eyes. Each their own universe. When I had first picked up a camera, I realized that it was designed exactly like the human eye, taking in light through a lens, and forming it into images. I began taking countless pictures, and focusing on the eyes as much as I possibly could. Covering the eyes completes the concept of mental health by having the audience focus more on the idea that we are going for: bringing alertness towards serious issues as social media tends to hide all that.
