Christian Hopkins’ images are reflective of his own personal battles with depression. The 20 year old has admittedly faced the condition for the past four years, prompting him to incorporate it into his mesmerizing works of art.
Several different themes and moods are at play in Hopkins’ portfolio. Each picture reveals a different scenario, seen in bagged faces, bodies curled up in balls and wings literally sprouting from a bony back.
These pictures are altogether haunting, maddening and entirely upsetting, speaking to his talent as a young photographer. Darkness furthermore abounds, reflective not only of his history with depression, but also with the sentiments of his growing fan base, reflected in his warm reception on Redditor.
