Mildly Depressed is a multimedia project by Chicago-based creative writer Jackie Mantey. It’s an exploration of what life is like for people who feel kind of bad but, like, still have to go to work in the morning.
The public domain images for each post of Mildly Depressed are from the New York Public Library’s digital collection. They are edited with needle, thread, and a healthy sense of disillusionment by Jackie. If you click on any Mildly Depressed photo at the bottom of each post, you can see the original image.
