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.

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,"
Heat
2020
I love heat. I'm never more happy than when temperature is 100. I love the sun, the sensation of heat on my skin. Maybe I should live permanently in a place like Death Valley. It's pretty boring from a photographer point of view, but at least climate is just right for me.

A lonely walk in a dead town

Confinement or no confinement? A dead city is a dead city. Walking here is like walking in a graveyard, tough without the feeling of being in a sacred place.
Colors of a ghost town
2020
It is hard for me to imagine people are actually living here. All I see is a desolated dirty hell hole. I don't see people, I don't see traffic, I don't even see a fucking stray cat or a bird. There is silence, there is no life, there are rotten derelict things.It is a ghost town.
Morning walk in a quiet world of trees

A foggy park in infrared

Fog, cold, bad light... There are good chances I will be alone in the park. I like that. Infrared might seem to be the best choice with this kind of light.
Lost in a cursed forest
2020
My old forest is not only golden. It is also cursed. New emotions and feelings just a couple feet away from the golden spots. Same place, different visions.
