Only the Lonely
From 26th January to 20th February 2022, Tony Fisher, who recently joined the RPS, will be putting on his “Only the Lonely?” exhibition at the Art House in Wakefield.
Tony’s “Only the Lonely?” photography project, which was funded by Arts Council England, provides a valuable insight into the nation’s mental health and wellbeing through his study of human solitude and isolation.
For over 40 years, mental health has played a key part in Tony’s life, a succession of personal tragedies having led to depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder which in turn left Tony struggling to cope with the extreme loneliness caused by his loss.
Suddenly, Tony’s life had come to a standstill and he was at a loss as to how to get it moving again. Once a creative photographer, who was passionately involved in his local community, Tony had now become withdrawn from his former life.
And yet, it was Tony’s love of art which helped him to come back from what he describes as a very “dark place.”
