Photography series taken by Rosie Kitt, a 27-year-old from Nottingham who has experienced depression, anxiety and PTSD. Rosie finds healing through creativity.
About the series: “Manifestation of Trauma on the Body’ explores the effect of both the physical and psychological impressions that traumatic experiences can leave behind on the body. These include desensitization, flashbacks, speechlessness, fight or flight response and the effect on the entire organism.
Resulting stress from painful experiences can harm us through the physiological changes to the brain and body which can persist way beyond the trauma itself. This work uses photography to capture and freeze these attributes, much like the way trauma imprints characteristics on the brain.”
