Latitude

Photo taken by contributor millrick, a man who currently resides in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Rick’s experience with mood disorders started as a teen in an isolated farmhouse, in an isolated village, in an isolated region of Canada. Having survived his first brush with suicide, Rick went on to a successful career only to have his life derailed by mental illness once again. Forty years later, Rick is rebuilding his life one photograph at a time.

About this photo: “The winter of 2015 was very brutal for my psyche; so much so that I wasn’t sure I would survive it. I’ve been living on an emotional roller coaster for so long I never know when I’m going to feel up and when I’m going to feel down. I hadn’t left my apartment for two days when I decided to capture some images from the very last minutes of the winter season. This image is brutally metaphoric, but there are few greys in my life right now.”
