A self-portrait photo essay on depression

2021 was the year I experienced the “death” of the self. It started with a revelation: I was diagnosed with a chronic depression I have been living with for over 15 years. I didn’t know who I was, how I was going to find myself again, how long it would take to figure out my true self while suffering the consequences of emptiness. It was a long journey I still haven’t fully finished that I decided to document through a series of self-portraits in this photography project titled Insomnia.
