“The Comfort Zone” is a photographic project exploring comfort and happiness among Swedish youth. In today's society there is a stigma around mental illness and feeling sad. There is not a lot of people that are eager to talk openly about their feelings, especially when it involves feelings of anxiety and sadness.

I want to change how we talk about our mental health, and instead I asked the four people I’ve portrayed in this project “what makes you happy?”. Prior to talking about their anxieties, they got to talk about what makes them feel better. 

In this part of the project we follow Peter, Emma, Michel and Johanna, talking about their place of comfort and their thoughts on well-being. 

Photographs and words are collected in a printed zine.
