Photo taken by contributor Mark Maya, a 30-year-old photographer from Durham, North Carolina, who was recently diagnosed with bipolar II. Mark has used photography to treat and express himself for about four years now. He is currently doing a yearlong self-portrait project.
About this photo: “With this self portrait I am communicating the “next big thing” syndrome that I have in my life. I have had many different jobs, passions and ideas that I have whole-heartedly pursued only to ditch it for the next. This tends to make my life exciting but at the same time I have an inner yearning for “calm” knowing all the while that it will never come.”
