Photo taken by contributor Janna, who has suffered from panic attacks for the last year that have left her shaken and insecure. However, through her anxiety she has met some really nice people who have similar conditions and this has really helped her in realizing that she is not alone. It allowed her to understand her situation and mental illness more. She is currently in her final year of a Fine Art degree in Ireland and is using being creative to help release some of the pressures in her life.
About this photo: “In my work I search for the beauty behind the obvious. The verity behind the mask of perfection. Beauty, although adored, isn’t perfect.
In this photograph I wanted to achieve something that appears beautiful to the outside eye but on closer inspection isn’t perfect.”
