The silence that a person experiences when battling with depression cannot be described in words. Therefore, photographer Maureen Drennan captured her husband's tough phase of depression and her difficulties to understand it in the project named "The Sea That Surrounds Us". It was framed in a series of photographs. And, the best part was that they combated it together.
Read on to know more about their beautiful story!
The name of the project is taken from a romantic poem by Pablo Neruda called Night On The Island.
The photographs of her husband have been collected and mixed with the images from Block Island, Rhode Island, where she spent time as a child.
The same isolation that she felt on the island is being felt by her when she is with her husband and the same thing is felt her husband as well.
We can be troubled by a speck of dust if it enters our eyes.
Connecting her own feelings with the distant figure of her husband.
That it is indeed difficult to understand. A person's emotions, no matter how long you've been connected to them; once they are a distant dream, all the understanding seems vague.
The pictures seem to speak volumes about their battle.
But, it isn't impossible!
