Photographer Kate Miller-Wilson has produced a poignant self-portrait series that explores her struggle with anxiety. Shocking large format film with static electricity, she creates random points of light on the photographs and, at the same time, mimics the unpredictable nature of anxiety.
“I know static can wreck a great film photo, but I also saw potential there,” the photographer tells. “Possibly, static could show emotion or make the unseen visible in a photo. Static is unpredictable, and I knew that if I could find a way to use it with portraits, it could offer some magic or express nuanced things it might otherwise be difficult to show.”
