Please say a warm hello to first-time contributor Magic, a 27-year-old citizen of the planet, currently trying to find his place on earth so he can finally lay down his backpack. His mental health challenges began at the age of 11, when he was bullied. Since then, he has fought his way through anxiety, depression and body dysmorphic disorder. He uses poetry to scream and photography to calm down.
About the photo: “This photograph, which I call ‘Bordergeist,’ was my attempt at facing some of my greatest fears. Due to BDD I prefer to be on the other side of the camera. Without resorting to metaphors, I tried to capture the state of my body and mind during a panic attack.”
