Photos by contributor DeBorah, a 58-year-old woman living in Brooklyn, New York, who has been diagnosed with depression, anxiety and panic attacks. In March, 2015, she spent two weeks inpatient at Kings County Hospital being treated for her depression, which had caused her to descend into a sea of sadness and despair. Photography has been her saving grace going from a coping mechanism of survival to a passion, enabling her to thrive and express her creative passions. DeBorah’s photography genre is Street/Urban photography and her photos can be found on her photography blog, Roaming Urban Gypsy.
About these photos: “When anxiety and panic attacks loom over me she finds safety and healing escaping into magical mystical personas/avatars where peace and serenity reign. Photography helps settle and center in the midst of shifting sandy landscapes. Her goal is to be Victorious and not give into being a victim.”
