Following on from my post about Personal Landscapes a while ago, I came across this article which for me is an interesting read as it supports my theories about using photography as a complementary therapy and inspires me to look at this idea further. I am of course extremely happy that photography has helped Esther Lynn and congratulate her on her winning photograph. I am now even more convinced of the validity of photography as a form of therapy either in its own right, or as part of a more holistic approach.
Please, please, please read the blog article and perhaps if you feel so inclined, read more about the issues that people are having with mental health in the rest of the website & blog – 1 in 3 people have mental health issues.
