Throughout October 2016, we will be fundraising to Keep HeadsUpGuys Going and sharing stories of recovery and practical tips from men who have fought and overcome depression.
"Photography saved my life."
About Bryce Evans:
I’m the Founder of The One Project and a leading expert in therapeutic photography – teaching, writing and speaking around the world about the healing power of photos. I’m also an award-winning photographer, artist and marketing consultant discovering the art of life. I’ve built a community over 50,000 people, worked with top international brands and exhibited my artwork internationally — all to help inspire and share valuable insights (with a special focus on mental health).
Photography saved my life. The biggest turning point was when I began the process of starting to express what I was struggling with (and had been silent on for too long) through my photos. I started out very generic and broad, working with my photos to build stories that I kept private for quite some time. It was a practice in trusting my instincts and inner voice that helped me to become more comfortable in exploring and expressing these issues. Eventually, I was able to start talking about it with others and break my silence — that changed my life.
Honestly, I know the perceived risk and fear surrounding the idea of starting to talk about what you’re struggling with. I was there years ago and had been stuck for too many years because I felt like talking about it was no longer an option. There had been too many opportunities that I let pass by and all of the stigma seemed too heavy to take on.
If this speaks to you, please try to use photography to help you get started — as soon as you open up and start to share your story, your life will start to change in the most incredible ways that you never imagined. I promise.
