How does one make the invisible, visible?

Caitlin Largent is a fine art and documentary photographer from Suffolk, primarily focusing on her own experience with chronic illness after being diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2017. Her work attempts to portray the main symptoms she experiences which are chronic pain and fatigue, two abstract concepts that able-bodied people struggle to fully understand, the intention behind this is to create an awareness and understanding of chronic illness as well as bring attention to the effect this has on mental health.

Caitlin’s work is deeply inspired by other artists tackling the idea of illnesses both mental and physical, such as, Jo Spence, Frida Kahlo and Tracey Emin.
