Human Color

Photos taken by contributor Brandon Halley, a 20-year-old fine art photography student from St. Louis, Missouri. Brandon suffers from severe anxiety and depression, and is currently in recovery from self-harm. Realizing that photography and digital art were the only ways he knew how to relieve stress in a healthy manner, he started doing it more often in hopes of being noticed and making a living off of it, all while improving himself personally.

About these photos: “These are two images from a series of photos I’ve started at my university, called Menschliche Farben, or Human Color. I basically am trying to blend the human body in with the canvas, but also make it noticeable by using colors and other minimalist designs.”
