Hannah & The Cambo Passportrait is a series of portraits created using a passport camera and Polaroid peel apart film. This series of work was made in a time in my life when my depression and anxiety was at its worst. In result, causing these Polaroids to take on a more quiet and somber essence. My hope is for you as the viewer to have a sense of feel of what I was going through while creating this series of work. Unwanted, scared, lost, and alone.
I suffer from both sleep paralysis and a minor sleep apnea. When either of these things happen, I end up getting into my own head with the fear that I stopped breathing or the feeling of something sitting on my chest. This usually triggers my anxiety and depression, that sometimes causes an insomnia. I made these self portraits one night after not sleeping for a few days.
