Photographs That Explore The Feeling Of Anxiety

In his photo series called ‘It’s Hardly Noticeable’, photographer John William Keedy explores the theme of anxiety-based mental illnesses.

Inspired by his own personal struggles with an anxiety disorder, Keedy’s photo series “explores the world of a character who navigates living with an unspecified anxiety-based mental illness”.

According to his artist statement: “He negotiates situations constructed to highlight the impacts and implications of his differences on his thoughts and behaviors, and by doing so raises questions of normalcy.”

“Through constructed tableaus and metaphorical still [lives], the series reveals the relationship between reality and perception, and highlight issues of pathology while questioning stereotypes of normalcy.”
