Student Photo Project Illustrates What It's Like To Experience Anxiety

Student Photo Project Illustrates What It's Like To Experience Anxiety

Ever increasingly it seems that people are beginning to open up about their experiences of anxiety and depression.

Katie Joy Crawford, a 23-year-old photography student based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana decided to do something very special for her senior thesis at the end of college.

She decided to make a photo series that would capture her experiences of mental illness.

Here are some of the photos in the collection we found most impressive...

Speaking to Buzzfeed about the photo, she said: "They keep telling me to breathe. I can feel my chest moving up and down. Up and down. Up and down. But why does it feel like I'm suffocating? I hold my hand under my nose, making sure there is air. I still can't breathe."

She added: "It's strange - in the pit of your stomach. It's like when you're swimming and you want to put your feet down but the water is deeper than you thought. You can't touch the bottom and your heart skips a beat."

Speaking about feeling trapped, she said: "You were created for me and by me. You were created for my seclusion. You were created by venomous defense. You are made of fear and lies. Fear of unrequited promises and losing trust so seldom given. You've been forming my entire life. Stronger and stronger."
