After his diagnoses, Honaker turned to his camera to help him document his experiences and make sense of his emotions, through creating a series of powerful self-portraits. "Edward's face is blurred or covered in all of the haunting black and white photos, which are meant to portray the helplessness felt by someone who is battling a depressive disorder" or other mental illness.
Honaker hopes that his art will move people, help combat stigma, and foster understanding and support for those who are suffering.
"Your mind is who you are, and when it doesn't work properly, it's scary".
