PTSD Focused Exhibition Opens In Windsor

Posted on November 13, 2018

Post-traumatic stress disorder is the focus of a new exhibition in Windsor using photography and art sourced from veterans diagnosed with the condition. Captured by photographer Phil Donnelly, many of the images and art focus on veteran Terry Brazier, now a world champion mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter. One image shows the former parachutist, beret on, gazing deep into the camera. But there is more to the image than immediately meets the eye – if you look closer you can see another picture of Terry’s family that has been photoshopped over his pupil.  Curated by Army veteran Leo Stokes, the former Irish Guardsman now paints and writes poetry to help deal with his PTSD. “It goes through stages but for me personally it’s a way of bringing myself back into earth, instead of disassociating and getting through the day struggling,” he said. “I’m trying to focus on something that will eventually hopefully be a positive.”
