Photos taken by contributor Yael, a woman who has suffered from anxiety and depression since junior high school. After a year of not going out much because of her anxiety, she finally got the courage to talk to a neighbor who ended up introducing her to photography. The two women were able to connect through their shared interest in taking photos, and find inspiration together in their small town. Yael has been photographing ever since, and finds it to be quite therapeutic.
About these photos: “I live an impatient lifestyle which is why I just came out of an eating disorder hospital. I met many fabulous people. Sad … very sad. But I post this pic to show… come out fighting or you will never come out.”
