Photo taken by contributor Hank Shaw, a writer and amateur photographer who has had several family members who have struggled with serious depression. He lost a brother to suicide in 1984.
About this photo: “This photo was taken recently at Letchworth Gorge in Western New York. It’s called “intensity.” In my view, it captures the higher highs and lower lows that so many people with mental health issues experience. Sometimes, photography, image making, and creativity help people deal with the volatility.”
