A Photographer’s Remarkable Journey Back from Depression

Jenn Wong called upon her camera to help her out of a six-year funk.

“Old photos bring back a time, a place, and a life that are long gone,” writes Malaysian photographer Jenn Wong on Bored Panda. “They remind you the people that are long gone. Unfortunately, I spent five or six years trying to heal myself from depression. I did not know how to make it back then. I disconnected from almost everything. In the process of self-healing, photography and getting closer to nature helped me a lot. Now I see everything from a different, colorful perspective. I love things in colors and I’m grateful for everything.”

We were moved by Wong’s story of creative healing, and are thrilled to share the results of her artistic therapy; to see more, check out her website and Etsy store, or follow her on Instagram.
