Depression and anxiety affect 1 in 5 Australians and can be as severe, incapacitating and life threatening as other physical ailments. Reaching out for help is often difficult.

With kind thanks to Justin for modelling for this image. Taken at Hallett Cove, South Australia

Neither life nor art travels in clear straight lines. While he has spent his adult life developing a career in pharmacy, his interest in the arts has continued to grow. Paul’s passion for photography combined with his love of travel has produced a remarkable portfolio of images inspired by colour and movement. In a small way capturing images satisfies his curiosity about people and their culture.
