Photo taken by first-time contributor Brittany Tremor, a 23-year-old photography student at Texas A&M University-Commerce. When she was 14, she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Photography has always been a way for her to get outside of her head and recreate the things she sees around her or to convey what it’s like inside her head.
About this photo: “This photo sort of represents my relationship with the woman in the picture. She and I had similar backgrounds and were both needing a friend close by to just let loose with, someone who wouldn’t judge and could understand how hard it is to deal with mental illness. I didn’t realize it when we met but she’s my accidental angel.”
