ARCHETYPES OF MENTAL ILLNESS – Part 1

Print

Archetypes of Mental Illness is my BFA thesis. Inspired by American cinema’s fascination with mental illness, these books showcase the various ways hollywood’s portrays them, and how they are often misportrayed. The visuals are screen caps stills juxtaposed with articles and infographs of actual mental illness statistics. Each section of the book showcases a type of mental illness as well as a movie’s portrayal of it, ranging from depression to dissociative identity disorder.
