The Time to Change Wales team spent a lunch outing this week to see Ffotograllery's new exhibition space featuring Suzie Larke’s photography. Suzie’s work attempts to transform her own personal experiences of depression into something more tangible. To challenge the cliché ‘head in hands’ image that is often used to depict depression by the media and to raise awareness and break through mental health stigma.

‘In the Mind’s Eye’ is funded by the Arts Council Wales, with backing from Mind Cymru, Time to Change and Disability Arts Wales.

Writing for Time to Change Wales in 2016, Suzie said that she hopes "to raise awareness and challenge commonly held stereotypical views of mental illness by creating photographs that, whilst maintaining a level of realism, distort reality in a way that opens up the experience of depression; creating a broader perspective that is open to subjective interpretation and allows people to locate their own experiences with mental illness within the images".
