Please say a warm hello to first-time contributor Nick Baber, a 41-year-old Chief Operating Officer from Surry, England. Nick was diagnosed with depression four years ago, but has been suffering for over twenty years. Since coming out of the closet about his mental illness earlier this year, he has been humbled by the support and encouragement from family, friends, and work colleagues, and has recently returned to taking photos as a way to relax.
About this photo: “I took this photo whilst on holiday in Devon in 2010, and it seems to capture how I feel when I’m depressed. You can clearly see each drop of rain on the window, but nothing else in the outside world is in focus. I end up losing sight of what’s happening around me and spend all of my time thinking about all of the negative things that are happening, many of which are in truth not that important.”
