26-Year-Old Battles Depression By Travelling The World For 3 Years

Depression is a real psychological condition that, for many, can be completely debilitating. One photographer – Michael Loffer – fights his depression in part by traveling around the world and taking beautiful photos.

Many commenters on reddit, where he posted his photos, took issue with the idea that he was suffering from depression while engaged in such a seemingly costly and enjoyable pastime. But he insisted that he had managed his wonderful trips through thrift – by couch-surfing, hitch-hiking, not partying and living cheap – both at home and abroad. And, unlike most photographers, who use high-quality SLR cameras, he shoots with a $300 Nikon AW 100.

Loffer wrote that the moments he photographed “breathed a little life” into him. Whether or not you’re suffering from depression, we hope they brighten your day, too!
