“Cope with your demons in a healthy way.” - Nacho
Nacho, 20, is a fine art photographer who deals with both depression & anxiety. At the age of 17 he began dealing with his anxiety & then at the age of 18 he went through a relationship that triggered his depression. His lowest points are when he’s alone, he starts to overthink & it becomes harder for him to rationalize. He finds peace in distractions, which can consist of other people or media. He has a strong passion for photography & making the masks he uses during his photoshoots, they represent what he feels everyone goes through. Nacho says he has a hard time opening up about what he deals with. He believes that when you tell people you have depression they look at you differently. He doesn’t want anyone to feel alone & wants other people who deal with mental illness to find their passion & use that as a healthy coping mechanism.
