La Bailarina

Photo taken by Paz, who struggles with depression. She was diagnosed with bipolar II in 2008, but a year ago got a more accurate diagnosis of borderline personality disorder. More about her history here, which includes drugs and a brittle bone condition. She writes and edits video and does other photo-related freelance work such as photo resaturation when she is able to. Her blog is a blend of memoirs related to her mental health problems, humor pieces, poetry and some of her other art projects, including photography.

About this photo: I’m an amateur but plan on dipping my hands with the camera a little more. This one was taken with a Nikon D70. It’s a photo of one of my dearest friend’s sisters who’s a dancer and is working on being a professional ballerina.
