Canon 6D, Canon 24-70mm L, flashes
This is a self-portrait I took in 2019. I have used colour flashes and long shutter speed to create a dreamy and otherworldly atmosphere. The image has not been edited except than small colour corrections etc. In my early twenties, I experimented with LSD regularly and excessively, and eventually experienced an extended psychotic episode, which had serious consequences on my own life, but also profoundly changed the way I perceive the world and reality itself. I feel like I acquired a new way of seeing as my understanding of reality changed forever. Taking self-portraits has been a therapeutic way for me to process my experience of psychosis. It is also a way for me to share my inner world and way of seeing with other people.
