How The Light Gets In

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: “The day was ‘Let’s Talk Day’ here in Canada. A national multimedia campaign to reduce stigma and get people communicating about mental illness. As I passed by this church window, the shadow of the tree caught my eye. A Leonard Cohen line rang through my head… ‘There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.’ I smiled.
