'Desolate' is a series highlighting the feelings of loneliness and suicide that deafness can bring. Deaf people often feel lonely and unable to relate with others within their environment; deaf people are four times more likely to have mental health issues and are five times more likely to commit suicide – in part because of overpowering loneliness and a lack of everyday communication that others take for granted.

The purpose of this series is to raise awareness about loneliness within the Deaf community and hopefully will encourage more people to consider learning sign language to allow communication both ways.
This series has been exhibited around the world.
