Topics mentalhealth
Desde que comecei a fotografar minha mãe, em 2012, me envolvi mais com questões relacionadas a saúde mental. Na nossa história, o Brasil tem vivido uma lenta evolução na legislação sobre os direitos das pessoas com transtornos mentais e a infra-estrutura disponível para recebe-los. Leve a sério o que ela diz é composto por retratos de pessoas que vivem com doenças invisíveis e que foram hospitalizadas em hospitais psiquiátricos em algum momento da vida. Alguns deles foram convidados a escrever uma carta sobre como se sentem sobre si mesmos. Este projeto começou em 2018 com base na memória do que ouvi várias vezes na minha infância: "Não leve tudo o que sua mãe diz a sério". Em processo de se tornar um livro.

Since I started to photograph my mother, I got more involved with the issue of mental health. Take Her Seriously is a project that started in 2018 based on a memory of a something heard multiple times in my childhood: “Don’t take everything your mother says seriously, Isabella”. My mother’s opinion had always been allowed to be questioned due to her mental condition.
After that, I started thinking about other possible investigations inside this theme, that would bring about the sensations experienced by people who have been hospitalized due mental health issues.

I searched for individuals that have been submitted to psychiatric clinics. Shortly I build a relationship with them, to make then more comfortable to talk about their experience.  Each person chooses the place where they want to be photographed and after that, all the people choose their photo for the project. I then ask them to express themselves about their feelings on the experience of living with mental illnesses, be it with words, drawings and other media.
