Theme: Things that make us better, things that make us worse.
“Mental health… is not a destination but a process. It’s about how you drive, not where you’re going.” Noam Schpancer
From the uncles and aunties practicing laughter therapy in the colony park to the teenager smoking cigarettes with friends, there are a lot of things we do in our everyday lives without realizing the deep connect they have with our mental health. Many of our habits whether good (like getting up early each morning) or bad (regularly spending tons of money on things we just don’t need) tell us something about our mental health. As do our attitudes towards people and life in general.
The idea behind this event is to capture some of these moments of everyday life and weave a story that makes us think about these linkages, especially those that aren’t easily visible but can be captured through a photographer’s lens.
