Living with anxiety, panic disorders or phobias can make you feel as though you don’t have full control of your life. Imagine sensing that every morning is a fresh minefield of terrors awaiting. Evading the perceived horrors, most individuals resort to excessive workloads, binge television viewing or overindulgence in carnal and gluttonous pleasures.

This edition will neither alter, nor cure phobic and obsessive behavior. It promises no tactical reinforcement skills, zero practical advice and is clinically useless. Over 250 photographic images punctuate each phobia creating exaggerated impressions. Each image is displayed in a cliché evasive environment. The contents may prove entertaining and an explicit, but disarming view of a serious subject. The publication is significantly less expensive than a therapist’s hourly fee and does not require multiple consultations or interventions.

Reciting elitist sounding vernacular may stimulate a sense of intellectual awe amongst simpletons and the impressionable. This pictorial directory is arbitrary, subtly ironic and subject to whimsical interpretation. The terminology may be effectively parroted during social or alcohol-laced gatherings (preferably together). Overindulgence of either however may banish you from the cocktail invitation circuit.

Phobias and obsessions can be paralyzing, irrational, profoundly debilitating and not particularly amusing for those afflicted. They can also be useful for simply distinguishing individuals as harmless eccentrics. A phobia’s professional diagnosis and follow-up therapies stimulate a thriving global psychoanalytical industry.

The photographer assumes entire credit and blame for his aperture’s interpretive intention. Use of photographic collage is periodically introduced. Malice is absent, a twisted perspective may miss awkwardly and the compilation is far from exhaustive. Fresh fears are stimulated and can be inserted liberally during these interesting times. Sequels are envisioned, but only if society continues on its present course.

An individual is not necessarily crazy or abnormal because of their fears and neuroses. Phobias and their accompanying stressors and are universally shared. The directory is an image compilation scoured from the sane world bundled into frivolity and laced with mirth.

Enjoy the diverse panorama...
