A silent sequential narrative journey exploring mental health and our sense of self.
‘There are empty spaces that must be respected, those often long periods when a person can’t see the pictures or find the words and needs to be left alone.’ – Tove Jansson, Fair Play
Through wordless black and white illustrations, John Cei Douglas empathetically shows the struggle to communicate how things feel when we get lost, and the wrenching effort that comes from dealing with anxiety and depression, over the course of an at times surreal and surprising journey.
A quietly beautiful meditation on the seemingly endless paths we try to take simply to get back to the place we think we should be, and all the obstacles we encounter along the way, All the Places in Between offers a comforting reminder that we’re not always alone on this journey…
