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: “My university has been dealing with a lot of issues regarding sexual assault and the overall safety of our students, and the student body does not feel like the administration is doing nearly enough to combat these issues. Because of this, I’ve decided to use the only voice I have, photography, and speak out about these issues by creating a series of photographs of men and women in locations on campus where they do not feel safe along with superimposed adjectives describing how they feel while there. I hope you enjoy, I’ve had quite an experience doing this, I am looking forward to continuing it.”
