« Six Months », photo book by Nathalie Ghanem-Latour, 2019
« According to the World Health Organization, 300 million people around the world have depression. Like many of those people, I felt hopeless, and had no sense of joy; I had a total depletion of confidence, and a generally bleak outlook on life. This photo book became my purpose and dedication to not only get better, but to reconnect with my passion once again. »
This book is a photo journal of the first six months of the artist’s mental health journey during 2015-2016.
