    Reported by:

    Diagnosed with PTSD and bipolar disorder this year, my mother has suffered in silence for the majority of her 53 years. Riding the rollercoaster of extreme emotions and warding off the stress that comes with joy and sorrow, she is still very resilient. She seeks daily to cope with who she is and how to live in a society that is full of explosive -and often times - crippling triggers.

    Really beautiful light in this image - catches just enough of the photographer's mother and the mood created helps tell her story. Well done.
