This looks very dangerous! It's disturbing. That's probably a good thing.

I adore this photo so much. The body language, the transparent head,the tendrils emanating from it, all add up to a seriously breathtaking work.

Awesome awesome awesome!.. i've been following you for some time and i dont know how i missed this. Where in Australia are you?

I read your story and like many who suffer from intense anxiety(going on 5yrs for me) I can relate to this. Seeing this is really calming for some reason. Maybe its
knowing someone else thinks & feels the same way :)

This piece of art speaks volumes. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but this somehow manages to say ten thousand without saying anything at all. Truly visceral. I deal with PTSD and generalized anxiety, and in this world, the things people can't see, they don't understand and don't believe. This picture manages to give voice to something that is so profoundly hard for people to understand, but so real for so many others. Truly beautiful.

This image really hits home for me. It perfectly visualises anxiety. I, too, suffer from it, and have been researching it for a college photography project I have at the moment. Out of everything I've researched, yours is my favourite. As well as being the most visually stunning, it is the most accurate in describing how it feels to have anxiety. Very well done, your work is beautiful.
