Vinosity is a publication which takes the viewer on a visual journey through the three stages of addiction. Each section is visually portrayed through photography and illustration to express the themes of intoxication, withdrawal, and craving. The purpose is for the audience to interpret these tools of visual communication in their own way.

It includes sketches which have been illustrated by anonymous individuals who have visually inputted their emotions expressed from the photographs taken by myself.

These photographs include specific subject matter, structured compositions and lighting techniques to depict the emotions felt during these stages of addiction. They reveal the feelings of euphoria, loneliness, depression, abandonment, anxiety, frustration and deprivation.
