What it’s like to feel

In my project, “what it’s like to feel”, I confront the struggle of dealing with major depression and articulating the depths of my emotions. Words, though powerful, often fall short, unable to encapsulate the vast expanse of assumptions and relentless ruminations that permeate my mind. As a queer, Black man, the challenges of existing in a world that others and stigmatizes individuals like me only adds to the difficulty of this journey. It is amidst this dissonance that I continue to seek meaning and purpose, forging connections that remind me of the profound relationships that anchor my life. Photography and art making has become my conduit for understanding these feelings, allowing me to better navigate the serpentine pathways of my thoughts.
