Photo taken by Clare, a woman who has been diagnosed with major depression, bipolar, among other things. Photography is something she studied in school some years ago, and still enjoys very much.
About this photo: “Manhattan means many things to me, and my feelings for it can swing like my moods. It’s a place of culture where dreams are made, and a place where they are crushed, a place to play and a place to work, a place of growth and a place of decay. Looking out over the rooftops, in the depressed state that I often find myself in, I may not think of all of these things, but it is a feeling that I have, one of soaring and falling at once.
This was shot with a Holga 35mm camera, using tri-x film.”
