Photographer shows the dual lives of people living with mental illness

 

Check out this piece on Slate today about photographer Liz Olbert. A talented photographer who is bipolar, she wanted to show her dual life – the one she shows to the public, and the private one that no one else saw until now. I can totally relate to this, and I’m glad she is convincing others to show their dual lives.

Art brings visibility. And visibility brings empowerment. Kudos to Liz and her subjects for showing themselves as they are — messiness and all.
