“These were touchy subjects so I did rigorous research to make sure I depicted it accurately,” Sampson says.
Though short of funds for the project, Sampson compiled a list of mental disorders and succeeded in getting his friends to act as models. Within eight weeks, he took photos that actually matched the description of the disorders he listed.
