Every opportunity I get to mix a bit of my photojournalistic background with the commercial side of things, I light up. Such was the case with this project for the Western Montana Mental Health center. The goal was to shoot simple photos that would go alongside their very personal, very real, and sometimes very hard to listen to stories of addiction and recovery. Each of the people pictured below have been through some hard times, but are working to turn things around, and live life in a different way. Hats off to them all.
