Gabriel Isak's take on depression and how it affects your life is beautifully hard-hitting. This post will leave you thinking deeply about a disease that is largely discussed but often misunderstood...
Gabriel Isak is not your ordinary photographer. He aims to let his viewers interact with their inner solitary figure by entailing melancholic scenes in his photos. When he first started exploring the realms of photography a few years ago, pangs of depression had enveloped his life and he tried his best to escape into a different world by using photography as a medium. Isak emphasized on creating a story which was lead by him and not the other way around. Here are some of the results that show how deeply he had fallen into the arms of depression.
Don't give in to your inner darkness.
Black or blue is just a point for you.
When you are amidst people and still feel lonely.
What happens after death?
This is really eerie!
How can one break free?
Set your mind free.
When approaching someone is tough.
Hello, from the other side.
Caught in the fire of imagination.
This takes a lot of courage.
They come and they go.
When you wish to fly away from all the madness.
The perfect balance has been achieved.
Don't shy yourself away from new relations.
Save yourself before it's too late.
Never let it go.
When all you can hear is the deafening silence in a room full of people.
The uncanny friendship.
There goes another soul.
We make these memories for ourselves.
The eye falls useless where the mind stands blind.
A companion sourcing from the darkness.
Wrong turns make greater maps
