Melancholia - Luke Saxon

Published by Luke Saxon

"Melancholia was shot while Luke was struggling with depression and anxiety. He has used the project to cathartically explore these feelings over the last year, and it has formed part of his therapeutic process. This collection offers a visual narrative that captures the myriad experiences, struggles, and triumphs he faced as he navigated the spectrum of mental health, visually recording his changing mood and his journey to recovery.

Luke's work includes collages over his original photographs, using both images and petals, sticks and flowers he found while out shooting. His use of petals reflects both the well-practiced art of masking from society that which is broken behind, and the healing influence of nature to regrow and recover. By overlaying his photographs he creates a visual narrative that highlights the powerful connections between the human psyche and the natural world, emphasising how it can serve as a catalyst for restoring emotional well-being

Through Melancholia, Luke hopes to foster an environment where dialogue about mental health is not just encouraged but celebrated"
