Please welcome first-time contributor Nicolart, a 23-year-old man from Bogotá, Columbia, who has been diagnosed with bipolar II. He is a suicide attempt survivor currently living with his parents and sister who are trying hard to understand his bipolar disorder. Right now he is in mixed state of depression and hypomania. Nicolart is a student of graphic design. He loves photography, especially digital photography inspired by surrealism. The photos he creates convey his emotional states.
About this photo: “Freedom is something I forget I have when I’m depressed. While birds can fly, I’m locked inside my mind. I wish I could have wings, like that black bird, and just hide from my illness, because I really hate being bipolar. It’s something I have to deal for the rest of my life.”
