Visualisation of Mental Disorders

Photographer Christian Sampson has created a stunning collection of work covering how it is to live with mental disorders.

“The collection actually started out as physical illnesses like cancer, but I wanted to create something that people struggled with every day but couldn’t see. I wanted the majority of people to relate to them.”

“These were touchy subjects so I did rigorous research to make sure I depicted it accurately,”

“Just because it can’t be seen, it doesn’t mean damage can’t be done,” Sampson says. “That’s why the series is so dark, because I want to make the point that people suffer from this.”
