Photo taken by contributor Tara, a mom in her mid-30′s who struggles with depression and anxiety. Mental health issues have always played a role in her life, beginning in childhood with a schizophrenic relative, and later another close family member struggling with incorrectly treated depression and anxiety. Tara never realized that mental health issues affected her photography until she began to build up a portfolio. She started noticing themes of brokenness, imperfection, and desolation throughout her work.
About this photo: “This photograph is of an abandoned house that I see most days on my way to work. I have become a bit obsessed with it and would enjoy discovering its story, though I know I probably never will. I am not brave enough to venture inside but I am intrigued at the mysteries it might hold.”
