Scarlett O'Connor

I am a photographer dedicating my final semester to combining two great interestsĀ of mine:photography and mental health (anxiety). Suffering from anxiety myself, being surrounded by people everyday that struggle with anxiety, feelings of depression, angst and general feelings of discomfort in everyday situations I feel very strongly about raising awareness and helping people understand the feelings associated with anxiety so that they are better able to help and recognize people in their everyday lives that suffer from it. My final work explores metaphoric and visual representations exploring a variety of emotions and mind-sets associated with anxiety in a way that is visually stimulating and provides an artistic approach to providing an understanding of the emotions involved.
