Please welcome first-time contributor Kevin, an 18-year-old photographer from China. He is currently based in Chattanooga where he attends high school. He’s been struggling with depression and anxiety for almost two years. He considers photography to be the best way for him to express himself.
About this photo: “I always enjoy walking on crowded streets searching for a bit of quietness. New York is where this photo was taken. For me, this city is fascinating, people walking on the streets encountering and passing by each other with different thoughts on their minds. They are always too busy to pay attention to what’s going on around them. This image represents this idea while the security man contrasts with the tourists. He’s turned back to the amazing view of the city while the tourists were fascinated. I see myself in the security man. Depression has killed my passion for my normal life where everything is supposed to be wonderful, but I am too stressed to see the beauties among it.”
