Pain Vs Passion


Passionate about mental health?  Want to share your story but not sure how? Want to speak up against the stigma? Well, I have the project for you! 

Hi, my name is Hannah and I am creating project called Pain VS Passion. In this project I am going around photographing different individuals and getting their hero stories.

I will be taking two photos of each individual. One with tape and one without.
The tape one will have four (4)  words that describe you at your worst and then the non tape photo without the words, BECAUSE our mental health struggles do not define us. These photos are taking in a place that represents the individual. 

I am collecting these images along with stories that explain how something you're passionate about got you through your hardest time(s). You are also welcomed to share as much or little about your story as you wish. 

1. What is a piece advice you'd give to your younger self?

2. What do you want to see changed for future generations 

3. What is one thing you're going to do to help someone else?

These answer/stories/photos will then be compiled into a book. 

I will then use this book as a resource to show to others about the impact mental health has on an individual as well as what others can do to help future generations.

These answer/stories/photos will also be posted on a website and instagram page. The webpage and back off book will include a detailed list of resources we have in Halifax.
