Renowned psychologist Sigmund Freud’s theory in Mourning and Melancholia expounds on the human state of mind. Freud suggests that our state of mind recognises distress during the loss of our objects of love and desire; therefore we mourn to help us overcome this loss. If we take a very long time to overcome our loss, we often slip into the state of 'Melancholy' which we can express in non-verbal gestures as depicted in the series of photographs 'HeartBroken' through the lens of a young man showing sorrow.
