Let’s Talk Campaign
Let’s Talk is a campaign that aims to spark millions of conversations about mental health. By literally drawing people’s most difficult thoughts on their faces, photographer Charlie Clift and lettering artist Kate Forrester hope to inspire others to open up about their own mental health.
Everyone featured in the project has had mental health difficulties. Charlie interviewed each volunteer to find out how they would describe these in their own words. The artists picked out words and phrases from the interview which they felt best explained each person's experience. On the day of the photoshoot Kate spent a couple of hours hand-lettering these words onto the person’s face. Having literally put their toughest thoughts out in the open, Charlie then photographed them whilst they talked about their life, their passions and their difficulties.
