Illustrations in Melancholia 

This film is an effort to capture the actual experience of urban loneliness and melancholia, through surreal visualisation. Gloom that follows one around like a cloud, the polished shiny veneer one puts up to hide the sadness that lies underneath, the feeling of isolation in public spaces, simple day to day tasks seeming like a huge burdens and the inability to do things and go places are all the feelings and emotions associated with depression that have no physical reality but are painfully real for people experiencing them. I have attempted to illustrate the same using props and the narrative of fashion photography.
