Please welcome first-time contributor Priscila Levis Stewart, an Argentinian photographer in her thirties who has been struggling with severe depression for almost 20 years. Priscilla is a survivor of two suicide attempts. Art in all its manifestations has always been a part of her life journey. She is currently working on a project about depression and the idea of how her life would have been different without this mental disorder. She hopes that one day she can apply the concept of “unconditional friendliness toward ourselves” (मैत्री in sanskrit) to her life.
About this photo: “For me, sleeping is the only way to escape from pain. Hiding from the world, avoiding my own reflection, without being able to recognize which part is the person and which part is the illness. Depression is the cancer of the soul.”
