Till The Smoke Clears

By February 19, 2018Depression, Photography

I posted this image to Instagram on Feb.19th and decided to take a break from social media. The post read “I’ll be taking a smoke break, or rather a break till the smoke clears. My depression hasn’t let up, despite my efforts to get better on my own. I’ll be taking this time to focus on my well-being and creativity. I’ll be back, stronger! Thank you for supporting my art. It means a lot.” Since, I’ve continued to get out and shoot, but still struggling with this heaviness called depression. I came across The One Project when searching “Photography as therapy” Thank you for creating this community, a safe place to share these feelings.
