"Life tests our strength in which success or failure is an aftermath. Failure in life often takes you inside the darkened zone of anxiety and pushes you away from yourself. Your confidence breaks, you lose your way and possibilities become invisible. The constant presence of stress inside you makes life like a hell, and it drains even the last drop of your aspiration." 

Photographer, Katie Joy Crawford carried anxiety for the majority of her life. She chose photography to depict oppression and journey of her as an instigator and victim of anxiety. Her thought of self-portraiture began her healing process. Katie modified her portraits to explain the gut-wrenching condition of an anxiety sufferer with expressions and special effects. Photography became the best therapy for Katie Joy to pull herself out from the deathtrap of anxiety that had been killing her every single moment.
