The Numbness

April 5, 2017

Upon reading a previous blog of ours referencing The Black Dog, we received a private message on MySpace from Gráinne, a certified OG who is the backbone of some our photography shoots.

 

Anyway, she sent some of her photos she had made to portray the insentient beings we become when there's a Black Dog at the door, We think these photos will speak to many people that have been trapped/numbed. So here's Gráinne's statement, and photos of course:

 

The Numbness

 

 

Trapped with no escape and being bound. Falling into the rabbit hole having the darkness consume the light. Allowing the black cloth transform into a mask that is never removed.

 

Visually revealing an emotion connection, creating a visceral response in each image, and offering an understanding of this illness that is often so intangible to others.

 

An imbalance and a divide into “the who” and “the what”. An empty creature forming within and the feeling for fights, fades.

 


The numbness, the chemical imbalance, the black dog.
