„With 'A View from Inside' Alexa Wright is challenging our preconceptions of what constitutes reality. The ten portrait photographs in the book draw on the principals of eighteenth century portrait painting to give form to the unique realities encountered by different people during psychotic episodes. The accompanying narratives offer a vivid first-hand insight into the experiences of the people portrayed. Two essays, by a psychiatrist and a cultural theorist, give the portraits a wider theoretical and social context. The book is published to accompany a series of ten framed photographic portraits (measuring 76 x 100 cm / 30 x 40 inches) designed for gallery exhibition.“
