Seeing Through The Lens
"I'm 19 years old. This image is about mental illness and how our reflection is never an honest representation of what we perceive as reality. It was taken in my house in Guildford[, Surrey,] of my friend who, like me, was suffering from anorexia at the time. We are both still recovering."
The media have constructed this world of perfection that a lot of people feel they need to be apart of. Everyone is pressured into striving for perfection in all aspects & everyone is so unaware in recognising this oblivion. People use this term as a goal to gain a sense of control when everything else feels let loose. Or they harm themselves from feeling far from perfect & societies expectations.
