Although it may be hard to lay eyes on self-destructing individuals such as those present in the photo series titled Despair by Daniel Grizelj, sometimes it is necessary to shed light on difficult subject matter. By doing so, it shows people that depression is not that uncommon, nor does it have to be the end-all, be-all of certain situations.

Even the explanation that accompanies the photo series Despair by Daniel Grizelj implies just this: "In images that looks into the abyss of human despair, there is the horrifying suggestion that these characters may not be grotesque exceptions, but may in fact be part of the mainstream of humanity." The photo series, highly stylized as it might be in color and composition, truly captures this sad truth.
