On this World Autism Awareness Day, please say a warm hello to a first-time contributor from South Africa. He was diagnosed several years ago at age forty with Aspergers and Major Depression. Last year, he left his job in the corporate sector to try and rebuild for his family after reaching a personal low that left him feeling useless and thinking often about suicide. Photography is a passion that he suppressed his entire life because of social interaction and self confidence issues associated with Aspergers. Three years ago, he picked up a camera again after 23 years and has been striving to find the courage to express himself since.
