Mindsounds is a photography series inspired by individuals living with mental illness. As most of us either live with, or know a family member, friend or co-worker who lives with a mental illness, it is a subject that is very relevant and important to everyone. For inspiration and direction, individuals living with mental illness have been asked to provide a word or metaphorical phrase that describes how he or she feels about living with his or her condition. It is with hope that Mindsounds will create awareness and perhaps give viewers the opportunity to experience, feel, and understand this often misunderstood and taboo subject.
This series has received an arts grant from the Waterloo Region Arts Fund.
