Antonia Attwood graduated fromBA Hons in Photography in 2014. Her practice in still and moving image explores ideas around the phenomenology of mental health. Since graduating Antonia has done artist talks at Photofusion Gallery, Free Space Gallery, The Dragon Café and The Broadway Cinema, Nottingham. She has also had exhibitions at The Depot, Clapton, Brighton Photo Fringe and The London College of Communication. Antonia has had two commissions from the Institute of Inner Vision to date. Antonia has experience working directly with people who have experience with mental illness, creating short films with volunteers from the Dragon Cafe as well as her Mother, who has Bipolar disorder.

Antonia's work aims to illustrate and visually interpret how mental illness ‘feels’. The metaphorical symbols create an attempt to raise awareness and understanding of the mood affectations and the phenomenology of mental illness. The work explores how it feels to be vulnerable and overwhelmed by the world living with a medical condition. It is not about communicating a straightforward message, but it interrogates an idea exploring aspects of that intended message.
