Self-Portrait in Four Parts

Photos taken by first-time contributor Sully Sidhe, a woman who has never been formally diagnosed with mental illness, but struggles with anxiety. She has a penchant for music and art in all forms, and loves glitter, rainbows, unicorns and the dark side of the moon.

About these photos: “I know we all have an imagery deep inside us that chooses its own still life everyday we open our eyes and notice our beautiful world.  I choose to experience and capture many wonderful, mystical and magical things in amazing surroundings, to share with beautiful people… my own shades, my own tone and my own vibrations.

In the words of Sylvia Plath, ‘I took a deep breath and listened to the old brag of my heart. I am, I am, I am.‘”

    I also struggle with anxiety but find that all forms of art brings me peace also. I can see your struggle in your photos.
