“My works raise awareness of mental health among young black male adults, which is caused by different aspects of external factors such as peers, family as well as societal pressure, bad habits, and desires. Often referencing my personal experience and that of my peers, looking at how each young male deal with their depression and how their response to depression affects others around them. I work on this kind of subject matter due to take note that a lot of people shy away from expressing their feelings. Having engaged subject as diverse as depression and anxiety, I am fascinated by how one adopts and develop mental disorder, so I use my photography to ascertain reasons that cause depression and reasons why horrible acts of violence are commonly linked to a male figure.…”
