Artist's Description

‘Black dog’ is a powerfully expressive metaphor that appears to require no explanation. The combination of ‘blackness’ with the negative connotations of ‘dog’, noun and verb, seems an eminently apt description of depression
an ever-present companion, lurking in the shadows just out of sight, growling, vaguely menacing, always on the alert; sinister and unpredictable, capable of overwhelming you at any moment

The fact that there is very little of me showing in this image only just peeking from the darkness the lord of this dark oppressive realm, is a metaphoric realisation of the feeling of depression.

Art created using a Nikon D90 and a Nikkor 18-105 vr
