Photographer Melissa Spitz has created a powerful photo essay, You Have Nothing to Worry About, which tells the story of her mother’s mental illness and how it impacted the family. In Melissa’s words:
“By turning the camera toward my mother and my relationship with her, I capture her behavior as an echo of my own emotional response. The images function like an ongoing conversation. ”
It’s moving to see how she’s used images and words to explore her relationship with her mother and share it with us in such a vivid way.
