Upside-Down

Photo taken by contributor Ian Mcintyre, a 33-year-old man who was born in Aurora, Colorado, but grew up in Canada. He graduated high school and was diagnosed with Schizophrenia at the age of 21. Ian likes to write poetry, listen to music, and read. He now lives in Prince Albert, in Saskatchewan, Canada, where he spends his days going to a drop-in centre for people living with mental illness. He enjoys attending the photography and writing programs.

About this photo: “Why? Six is a Nine upside-down, a mirror image that allows one to experience contrasts in life much like a Yin-Yang. Its kinda like the human mind and its subconscious. Even when we seem like we are doing nothing or going nowhere, the mind keeps on working for us.”
