2018 - Ongoing
Paris, Île-de-France, France
In May 2018 my doctor confirmed that I have a depression.
That's how my project been started.
My name is Daria Nelson, I am Ukrainian photographer living and studying photography in Paris.
More that one year ago I've completely changed my style and started dress up in retro/vintage clothes only. It gave me much more confidence, but the mental issues I had for years didn't disappear.
I have been always surrounded by people who told me that all my "mental health" problems are not really important as that's just a part pf my my imagination. They were sure that so elegant and beautiful lady can be unhappy or more than inside.
I started this project to show that it's more that okay to be "not okay".
And I continue.
Because mental health does matter.
