This series is all photographed within a three road radius of my home. The story of how this came about is very personal but ultimately positive.
Before Covid and lockdowns, I had a mental health crisis that brought about a self-imposed isolation. Anxiety and depression, caused by traumatic events in my life, meant that I didn't feel able to be far from my home. I had to force myself to walk around the block with my camera and take pictures.
At first, I was just taking pictures of anything but I started noticing details on the streets that struck me as odd or even made me smile. By focusing on these small "insignificant" things, I was able to figure out what was going on in my head. I was unconsciously photographing locks, gates, bars, chains, fences and discarded things. This is how I felt inside.
Three Roads is a journey into my mind as it was unraveling and on the road to recovery and each one comes with a small part of my story. These photographs set me free.
