Photo taken by first-time contributor Emmy, a teenager from Nottingham, UK. She has suffered bouts of depression since she was 14-years-old. Emmy studies History, Media, Film and Latin at school, and will be going to Lincoln University this September to do Creative Advertising and hopefully become an Art Director/Copywriter in the future. In her spare time she makes short films, one of which is being shown at her local cinema very soon, and she goes to lots of folk gigs.
About these photos: “To me my home is the foundation for a lot of sadness, it’s where i’ve experienced my bouts of depression since the age of 14 and have been on the brink of suicide. It represents a lot of hatred, fury and heartache. But on one afternoon, i was exploring the garden with my camera, trying to spot anything i could, and i found these flowers. To me this shows that in the darkest of places, you will find beauty and you will find hope. This is the light at the end of my tunnel, that i will get better.”
