Zolang je niet zo over problemen praat zie je er toch niks van
Authors: Sanne Kabalt Publisher: Stichting het Vijfde Seizoen Year: 018 ISBN: 978-90-822437-7-2 96 pages, duotone, 11,5 x 18,4 cm Zolang je niet zo over problemen praat zie je er toch niks van (As long as you don't talk about problems so much you won't see them anyway) is a photobook about empathy in psychiatry. Portraits of people in conversation and observations in body language are combined with textual dialogues. This project originated during a residency in Het Vijfde Seizoen, the residency on the terrain of a psychiatric institution in Den Dolder, NL. In the book you are invited to ponder the (in)ability to place yourself into another's shoes, the absurdity of mental illness as well as the familiarity and humanity of those who suffer from voices in their head, delusions, psychoses and depression. The title brings to doubt the work itself and the impossibility to photograph something as complicated as mental health problems.
