Depression is slowly taking the urban youth in its claws. Yet, some still tend to dismiss its repercussions as they do not understand what the mental illness can do to you. Photographer Victoria Krundysheva captured the grim reality in seven scathing pictures under the project 'The Dark Room', and captioned it: "Depression and anxiety is real. It are not something you can just “shake off”. It is not poetic, it’s painful. Perhaps, the worst pain in the world – the one that hurts your soul.
It is nothing to be ashamed of. All of us can get locked up in darkness. It is not something to ignore – no one deserves it, no one can deal with it... no one should. If you see someone entering the dark room or living in it – help them. Help them see that they can come out, deserve to come out and are loved outside."
It has you screaming... but there's no sound coming out. (Text: Victoria Krundysheva, Source: victoriakrundysheva/Instagram)
