One in four of us will suffer from a mental illness in our lifetime, and stigma and stereotyping very often make these already complex conditions worse. While reports in the media suggest that mental illness is on the rise, awareness and understanding of these issues among the wider public is often limited. How can photography be used to better explore and understand the complexity of mental health?
Our next talk brings together two photographers, Louis Quail and Daniel Regan, who have worked extensively on these issues – using photography to document the lives and experiences of those struggling with mental health, and as an art therapy tool to assist with recovery.
