Please welcome first-time contributor Ruby, a 20-year-old woman from England who has suffered from depression for the past eight years. As she nears the end of her degree in photography, she has decided to turn the camera on herself to try to understand, and learn to healthily cope with, the depression that overwhelms most of everyday.
About these photos: “I find it difficult to photograph anything other than myself at the moment. I feel self-involved and closed off, but I’m starting to see myself more. Am I drowning, or just treading water.”
