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:
“To prove that I love you
Because I believe in you,
Summer skies, the stars are
Falling all along the injured coast”
– Paul Simon
“I’ve always loved that line. He wrote it after travelling through central and South America. After making a similar trip last year, I experienced that same depth of emotion, that same beautiful, peaceful longing that must have inspired those words… That what may seem dark and laid bare can be so perfect… So it is with us.”
