WOOLVS, 2017

In his most dynamic and thought-provoking series to date, Caff Adeus sheds light on his own inner turmoil by warping reality to visually depict the manifestation of stress, doubts, insecurities, depression, trauma, anxiety, and the like, and how all of these things silently bend and deform us from within. This collection of photographs explores a world in which repetitive, destructive, and unhealthy thoughts physically mutate the human body beyond its natural capacity, until the darkness inside is visible to the world. This theory reaches a hauntingly beautiful conclusion through subtle manipulation of the images to expose the wolf beneath the wool. Although surreal in it’s execution, Woolvs summons a collective reality in which anxiety, trauma, stress, and even death, largely loom. Bridging the gap using professional dancers, Caff Adeus is able to tell a very important story about mental health.
