"Fear of being alone and abandoned." (This image will also be titled “Beauty & Strength”) – My interview with Jenny revealed an engaging mosaic of a person—determined, sensitive, caring, and while fairly private about her mental illness, she wants to share her story so that, “Everything I've been through is worth it.” Plus, she wants to help fight the stereotypes associated with mental illness.“ Just because I don't look depressed, doesn't mean I'm not. I feel like my feelings are pushed aside because I'm nice and smile.”……Jenny described a lot of feelings when I asked what her mental illness felt like. “Rollercoaster. Exhausting. Fear of being alone and abandoned.” But she also described how she feels “more aware of the things around her and deeply empathic to the feelings of others around her.”

The “If You Only Knew” photo essay has been a multi-year long photography project exploring what mental illness feels like to others. Starting May 4th, 2018, you can read about the people who inspired these photographs.
