Pictures of 2011: Runners-up

Mikaela Westerholm

Personal work from a series of images under the subject Dirt/Garbage.

Certain Of Self

On the 21st of September 2011 Mikaela Westerholm was taken in at a psychiatric ward in Stockholm. She was put on sickleave, medication and assigned a therapist. She was diagnosed with deep depression with possible intention of harming herself. This project is a journey of cleansing, a process to get rid of the unwanted dirt in one’s soul. There are three series. Each series consist of two pictures, a before and after picture, with two months of intensive care inbetween. It’s about the long and wining road to change.
