My Teddy Edwards
My Teddy Edwards is a story that focuses on my mum and her life, with an emphasis on her battle with depression. The project comes from a letter written by my mum while receiving treatment for her depression. It’s an amalgamation of images from my mum's childhood, with letters from her days of receiving treatment and also images taken over the last year. The project hits very close to home as over the last year I went through a lot of personal loss, which resulted in me having to fight my own battle with depression. Lockdown allowed me to spend more time with my mum, and I began to realise the importance of the people closest to me, especially her.
