Please welcome first-time contributor Savannah Condon, a 19-year-old traveling photographer who is currently residing in Seattle, WA. Savannah suffers from cyclomythia and depression. She has been on and off of various medications since she was 13. Savannah has had a passion for photography and art since she was very young, which makes it the perfect therapeutic tool for her. She especially loves creating self-portraits because she has difficulty explaining her feelings with words. Her self-portraits are raw expressions of feelings that she, along with many other people, experience on a regular basis.
About this photo: “Many of you may have heard the saying ‘digging yourself a deeper hole.’ At this moment in time, every action I made seemed to backfire. I couldn’t do anything right-I felt like I was self-sabatoging myself. My impulsive decisions were getting worse and more stupid. I felt out of control. Which was terrifying. I was my biggest problem and I was digging myself a deeper hole. And the worst part about it was I knew I was the only person that could get myself out of it.”
