As part of my A-Level Art project on depression and anxiety, I made a photography series on zoo animals specifically as a metaphor for entrapment.

The first photo shows a python through the droplets of condensation on it's glass enclosure, making it not immediately obvious of its confinement, much like to the common denialism of depression.

The second shows a tiger in the distance while audience in the foreground looks on behind a window. A metaphor for the bystanders of mental health who look on but refuse to help.

The last shows a crane's ankle tag, a reminder of it's predicament; the mental scar that never heals.
