Description

Depersonalization is categorized as a mental illness where someone feels completely detached from their body. Chronicling a journey from diagnosis to treatment, we're thrust into a world of absorbing, hypnotic, spiralling visuals that pull you into the struggles of this rare affliction. Mariam Zaidi
