The Lens of Therapy
What is the hidden potential in the connection between photography and psychotherapy?
Phototherapy, a budding field in psychotherapy, combines two worlds together to create a therapeutic method based on a passion for the visual.
The Lens of Therapy provides a unique glimpse into this developing discipline, unraveling the similarities in the bond between photographer and object and that of therapist and patient.
In a brilliant analysis, Anat Botzer, a psychotherapist and artist, highlights the hidden layers in the relationship between a therapist and a patient, comparing them with the layers in the creative photography process – using examples of great historical creative personalities such as artists, directors, theoreticians, and even characters from Greek mythology.
All these combine to provide a comprehensive and enlightening introduction into the contemporary, magical field of phototherapy – therapy through photography.
