Photo by contributor OutisPhotography, a man from Ecuador whose mental disorder became apparent at age 20 while he was attending university. After faking a mask for many years, he finally was diagnosed with Major Depression and Generalized Anxiety Disorder. The most difficult challenges he faced on a daily basis were finding a reason to get up each day and realizing how valuable the people he had around him were. Photography was one thing that helped him overcome depression.
About this photo: “This picture seeks to represent the process of a normal life, but seeks to demonstrate the problem that can result in a mental disorder and therefore it is difficult for us to do our activities and simply tend to lock ourselves in a dead end, waiting for the ‘delay’.”
