Postcards from an alternative take on reality

Digital artist Alexa Wright has made a career out of examining 'difference', and our social attitudes to what is seen as being outside the norm.

Her latest project 'A View From Inside' takes mental health as its foundation; examining the concept of reality from the perspective of 10 people who have experienced or still do experience alternative states of reality.

In this new series of photographs she has physically and digitally represented the way each of her subjects sometimes perceive the world when they are in their altered states.

The aim of the project is to challenge our perceptions of mental health and also our fixed notions of reality.

The images have been collected together in a book, and will be publicly exhibited later this year.
