ABOUT THE EXHIBIT: Barb Kellogg created “What Mental Illness Feels Like—Images & Stories”, a photography project inspired by conversations with a friend who battled depression. The result of those conversations was a better understanding, not of the text book definition of the illness, but of how it actually felt to him in terms Barb could relate to. This experience eventually made her wonder how she, as a photographer, could translate mental illness so that people without it could visually see how it feels, and hopefully relate in some way. After interviewing people living with mental illness, Barb created visual analogy photographs for each person based on their conversations about what their mental illness felt like. The exhibit also includes short stories and portraits of each person Barb interviewed. The goal of “What Mental Illness Feels Like” is to create understanding of mental illness, decrease stigma, and, ultimately, to humanize it. -- This activity is made possible through a grant from the Central Minnesota Arts Board, thanks to funds provided by The McKnight Foundation.” More info and (press kit)
