Still Life

Photo taken by contributor Johanna, a 36-year-old guidance counselor from Finland. She has family members and friends who have suffered or continue to suffer from mental health challenges, such as severe depression and bipolar disorder. Many of her students also have different kinds of mental health issues and as a guidance counselor it is her job to try to help them, for example by creating personalized study plans to support their recovery to full health. She also hopes to one day start using the method of Empowering Photography (developed in Finland by Miina Savolainen) in her work. Johanna enjoys photographing nature and her everyday surroundings, as well as music photography.

About this photo: “This is from my photo shoot a few weeks back. ‘Pelastusvene’ means life boat in Finnish. It’s there but not needed. Calm lake, serene morning. No need for a life boat. And yet, there’s a lot of still life in the shot.

    Soooo peaceful and dreamy! But you know, we never need a life boat … until we need a life boat. Loved the calm and peace of this ‘dream’ photo. Beautifully done. 🙂
