DescriptionThe Sadness is a self-portrait taken from photographic artist, Jaeda DeWalts, Striped Emotions series and is a part of the DeWalt Gallery collection.
ABOUT THIS IMAGE: This is the very first image in my Striped Emotions series. I like challenging myself in new ways, with my self-portraits. And i thought it would be interesting to see if i could make it look like i was interacting with myself . . . in some way.
I wanted to convey the extreme sadness i feel with manic depression. Over the years i have discovered that sadness is often anger, spread really thin, masquerading as melancholy. Anger is an emotion i have a difficult time allowing myself to feel and express, i often repress it. As a child i was not allowed to express my feelings or my anger.
There is a detachment that comes with sadness, a disconnect from the self, from the world . . . BUT i am in a good place at the present moment and i am getting better at managing the emotional tidal waves that manic depression brings.Self-portraits shot using a digital camera and remote controlled shutter release. Hair, styling, wardrobe and make-up also done by Jaeda DeWalt.
