In The Shadows

Photo taken by contributor Teija, a woman in her thirties from Finland. Teija suffered from a severe depressive episode at the age of 25, which turned into psychosis, and led to a three month hospitalization. Fortunately, she got better quite quickly and got her life back on track. She found love after getting out of the hospital. Her life changed drastically when her partner was paralyzed in December of 2012. It has been hard ever since. They are both fighting to keep from getting too depressed. Life goes on and they try to stay strong. She has been interested in photography for many years, but began actively exploring it over the last five years.

About this photo: “This one is from my recent vacation to Vancouver, Canada. Light is sometimes the only thing we need. That beautiful moment which can makes us believe that this world with all the problems we have, has so much beauty to offer us. And those little moments gives us strength to carry on.
