Ever wondered what grief looks like? What exactly does depression do to your insides? Apart from the melancholy that the face reflects, the troubled waters are deeper than you think. However, the unfortunate part is, depression in India is understood to be circumstantial and mental illness, treated as a societal taboo!
It is also dismaying that a matter so grave doesn’t find mention as much as it should. While the dialogue has been hush hush for a long time now, the murmurs have only begun to consolidate.
In an effort to cement the same, photographer Victoria Krundysheva has come up with a series titled, “The Darl Room”- Depression project, that connotes everything a person feels in the midst of his/her inner demons. Read the post here.
“The Dark Room” – depression project.
You entered to hide but there’s only blackness inside – reflection of nightmares and fears.
The darkness wraps around you – you can’t wash it off with soap…you are never clean enough.
It has you screaming… but no sound coming out. You crawl in the corner to hide… but even walls seem to be against you.
If you see someone entering the dark room or living in it – help them. Help them see that they can come out, deserve to come out and are loved outside.
Powerful, isn’t it? Only if people could understand the consequences it bears!
