In the last 5 years there has been a global rise in anxiety. Those who suffer from anxiety are often faced with misconceptions about this condition; the most common being that anxiety is something that can be shrugged off. For as long as I can remember, I have suffered with anxiety and know it to be something that disrupts your ability to function in normal everyday life. Turning to street photography, these images are created in a public space where for many anxieties are heightened. Creating a tension between detailed stills and blurred abstract imagery, this work seeks to represent a state of flux often experienced by those with anxiety finding it difficult to be present in the current moment.
