Joseph is an autistic photographer, battling depression at some degree for ages, and what actually now feels like all his life.
In this series of photographs he explores misery, hell, nightmares, self harms ideations, dispair, loneliness and the sadness of his journey into depression and suicidal thougts. You can think of it as a way to exorcise the darkest ideations that come with these mental health issues, maybe as a twisted way to express himself when he is not capable of doing so with words.
Maybe it is his way of documenting, sharing what he feels, what he experiences, but who would want to share that? What it is to him doesn't really matter in the end, because that is you, who are looking at those photos, who will decide what they mean to you. 
This is definitely not the best selling plot ever for a photography portfolio. But it is honest: like all the photos in this portfolio, brutally honest and blunt. You get the naked truth, the physical and the mental scars.

Emulating the Tri-X
2020
The T-max 3200 was one of my favorite film, but the TRi-X 400 always was my absolute favorite: I could shoot it from 400 to 3200 (and sometimes more) and always loved the rendering and grain quality.

Lost in a white old forest
2020
Sometimes, a forest is just a forest. Sometimes, it is much more. Or something completely different. With climate change, snow where I am right now became pretty rare. As soon as I saw the first snowflakes falling from the sky, I got ready for some cold adventure.

An aimless walk a Sunday morning

Goethe said "The soul that sees beauty may sometimes walk alone". I walked alone, in the hope of finding, if not beauty, something that would catch my eye. Updated from "An aimless walk a sunday morning in a dead city,"
