Piling Up

Photo taken by DeeDeeMy world is filtered through the lens of bipolar disorder. Most of my photography uses vintage and lo-fi cameras to capture the way my reality feels in the moment.

I am overflowing with emotion, yet swallowing it back somehow makes me feel hollow. The detritus of mental illness piles up when I don’t put words to it. Someday the truth will overflow and spill out.

This photo was made on a gray, drizzly day with a flipped-lens Kodak Brownie Hawkeye Flash, Arista.EDU 400 120 film re-spooled to 620, and daylight processing.
