Photo taken by contributor Luis Rosado, a Floor Supervisor and Lighting Technician of a film equipment rental house. He has been suffering from anxiety and depression for over 30 years, and has been sober for 4 years from an alcohol problem that lasted over 20 years. Photography has always been a wonderful outlet for him to capture and hold on to the brighter moments in his life.
About this photo: “This photograph is called “Under the Sea.” It looks like an anemone to me. It is nice to be able to be creative rather than destructive. In the past, instead of creating and submitting art I would be out getting high. Sitting on some bench in a park, alone, drinking to not feel. Sobriety to me is such a release. My mind can soar instead of be underwater like my photo shows.”
