Photo taken by contributor Keith, a photographer who has struggled with depression. Keith has spent the last year working on a 365 project, sharing one photo per day for 365 days. Through working on this project he has come to accept and understand his struggles with depression. For a long time he believed his mood swings and inability to connect with others was normal. It took until his disconnect affected his life with his little girl and fiancé before he finally sought help. Since then, he has been taking small steps towards bringing his life back to a happier place. Photography and medication have been helpful tools on his journey towards being a healthier, happier, more fulfilled person.
About this photo: “This image depicts one of the darkest moments during my depression. There were times I shut myself down to the outside world and lived inside my head. During this time I felt barely like myself and contemplated letting all my demons out, and allowing the pain and suffering to devour me.”
