Stigma

Photo taken by contributor Susan, a 42-year-old woman diagnosed with schizophrenia. Susan grew up on a grain and cattle farm near Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, in Canada, and enjoys taking pictures of nature and wildlife. She finds that photography allows her to explore her creativity and it brings her joy. It also helps her to deal with grief issues and the losses that she has suffered.

About this photo: “This picture represents the stigma of mental illness. The image in the glass ball shows us that stigma is just a reflection and not the truth.”

    I love how the glass looks split, but the flowers look whole. Beautiful picture Susan.
