I cannot believe how much this picture moved me, how much emotion it carries inside and how shockingly well it delivers the message and the feeling of depression- you made something so complex and seemingly huge seem understandable, you visualized a feeling that seems unexplicable- and made it seem simple, because so, so real.

Wow thank you SO SO much for your comment! It means so much to me, when I can convey the emotions I feel... My art is my passion and it's part of my way to express feelings and thoughts and sometimes I can communicate so much better with photo's than with words. Honestly, thank you so much, this comment made my day!

Depression and its deep roots into narcissism... what an interesting concept.

Actually (from my point of view) it's not about narcism, more about doubt and disbelief and about not recognizing oneself anymore. But my pictures are open to interpretation. ;)

Mmm, I think 'narcissism' has a broader interpretation than the one conveyed by the Greek myth.
I believe depression is sinking into oneself and shutting the doors to the outside world. Everything becomes about the self: self-pity,my misery, my unhappiness, me, me, me... I found out for myself that the best cure for depression is engaging with others, considering for a moment that my own misery is not the most important thing in the world.
That interpretation comes from recognizing in your photo something I went through. There are, of course, as many interpretations as there are people on the planet...

Sure! This series developed from MY experience but of course every depressive (or even non-depressive) person has their own views and experiences with the illness, and their own way of looking at my pictures. I heard lots of different things people saw in it, which makes me really happy. But it wasn't my intention to put narcisstic elements in this image (esp. because I think it's a very literal visualization to choose for an mirroring image), but I understand why people see it in it, or why they see connections to narcism in it.
