Photo taken by contributor Kyle Anderson, a man from Saskatchewan, Canada. Kyle is a 41-year-old health care professional who has battled depression and addiction for most of his life. He escapes by letting the camera become his mind’s eye, and hopes that each photo he takes allows others to see the world as he sees it, even for a split second.
About this photo: “This picture with it’s vibrant color and leading foreground grasps for me the reality of someone or something that you hold so close… slipping further and further away from you. The figure in this image may have once been me, but now it is something beyond me that I am not meant to hold on to. You can never truly hold on to anything except yourself.”
