These Conceptual Artworks Tell The Story Of Depression In A Different Way
SPONSORED

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.
