It's time to start changing our perceptions of mental health

Sian Davey's new series of photographs, 'Testament', aims to alter the perception of mental health that society has become so accustom to.

Davey's series, 'Testament' aims to bring light to the relationship between depression, anxiety and living in poverty. 

Over 1 fifth of the UK population are living in poverty, and with poverty rising by over 40% since the mid 90's, even employed families are now suffering from poverty as well. 

In her photographs, Davey captures how common it is to suffer from depression and anxiety, and aims to, 'close the gap between the observer and the subject'. 

It is imperative that we begin to close this gap, in order to increase the understanding we have for others, and begin altering the way we think and work to benefit everyone.
