This piece explores the context of my own internal changes, despite being young i have suffered from multiple mental illnesses. In the past few months have finally begun to break free from these issues and am on the road to recovery. The image is a self portrait, the double exposed floral arrangement is symbolic of my awakening and positive road to recovery, the flowers were photographed while floating within a stream, which is linked back into the struggles i have faced and will face in the future, as the water is a persistent current pulling me back into the darkness. Despite this as i recover the water is no longer a river but instead a quietly trickling stream.
I would like to think that in the future i am going to "change my world"
