UNSEEN- a photographic project to depict mental health experiences.

AHSW Member and fine art photographer Suzie Larke found herself presented with surprising new creative opportunities during lockdown. She is now encouraging others to feel inspired by her project ‘UNSEEN’

AHSW Member and fine art photographer Suzie Larke found herself presented with surprising new creative opportunities, despite a difficult lockdown after isolating with her brother, boyfriend and seriously ill father in a small cottage in Wales.

Suzie’s current project ‘UNSEEN’ uses photography to help people express their inner experiences of struggle and their own mental wellbeing in an empowering and engaging way. Her conceptual, surreal images aim to represent an internal state rather than capturing a moment in time. Suzie combines photographs to present a single un-tampered image that defies logic and challenges our notion of reality.

Since lockdown Suzie is putting call out for others to have a go, no matter what their skill level or chosen medium using the hashtag #UNSEEN.
