“Sometimes, reality may be modified by discovering other points of view within the world, its people, their external and internal landscapes, and their madness. The purpose of the present exhibition is to feature the inner life of people with mental health issues, captured by anonymous people and themselves.

Communicating through images and words of madness and meanings, photographers and the public can embrace all perspectives shown by the pictures; looking at people from all possible angles: daily situations, silly, happy, dramatic, comic, lights and shadows, happy and sad moments, the particular vision of each photographer in an attempt to learn more, be more aware and change the world, at least for those who wish to look ahead and beyond the camera.”
