It’s Hardly Noticeable
Wow, I just found this photography exploring anxiety and obsessive ritual courtesy of Leena van Deventer on FB:
Photographer John William Keedy explores themes of anxiety and varied neuroses in his series titled It’s Hardly Noticeable. Examining his own struggles with anxiety over the past nine years and drawing from other mental disorders, the images present an insightful look at behaviors that are deemed “abnormal” while simultaneously challenging ideas of normalcy.
None of the images are graphic but I found them really unsettling. I really like the use of grids to show repetition, which echo some of the grids I put into Broodhollow: Zane’s open-and-close ritual, the windowpanes of the antique shop, the final beatdown.
What do these images do to you?
