Faces of Depression

Photo taken by Tara O, a freelance photographer with depression from Phoenix, Arizona, who specializes in pinup and retro style photography. She went to Arizona State University and studied Fine Art, and loves making more meaningful images also.

About this photo: This image attempts to capture depression in a way most people don’t understand. It’s not just sad, it’s a lot of emotions all once, sometimes making it hard to distinguish what you are even feeling.
