Depression, as we all know, takes a heavy toll on one's physical and mental well-being. It is one among the most prevalent problems that the society is facing today. Depression may be a problem on its own but it also gives way to many other bigger health issues.
Today, we'll witness the work of the South African photographer Janelia who has projected depression differently, using conceptual photography. She conveys her messages by using software to fuse different images into a cohesive whole. Most of her images portray a surrealistic nature and are often described to be bizarre.
Janelia's other passion is collecting antique and vintage items, which spill over in her photographs.

The lack of limbs symbolises that anyone can suffer from depression.
The subject in this artwork has no face which symbolises depression.
This art piece attempts to show how a depressed person feels.
People suffering from depression feel a sense of hopelessness which eventually leads to frustration. In this photograph, the character is shown wearing a shoe on one foot. The other shoe is lying on the ground.
Depression leads to lack of self-worth.
People suffering from depression feels lonely. That's what this artwork tries to show by depicting the person being stranded alone in the rain with no one around.
Solitude is good but if the things go beyond... it can get bad!
Not wanting to wake up, ever!
Remembering the good old times and discovering that they won't come back.
Not opening up!
The emptiness within!
Expectations kill it!
When truth fades away!
It's hard to take one!
At times, it leads to isolation.
Do not ignore me!
When you restrict within boundaries.
Losses leave a big impact.
