Throwback Thursday: The Power of Photos

August 06, 2014 in In the News

2100 photos, 6.5 years, 1 video diary

This past June, Rebecca Brown uploaded a YouTube video that documents her mental illnesses – depression, anxiety, trichotillomania, and dermatillomania – one photo a day. Over six and a half years she has documented 2100 photos, and even more impressively, her project is still going.

She doesn’t just want to show viewers her transformation – rather she wants to educate them about what it’s like to live with mental disorders they possibly have never heard of – and also as a way to reach viewers who may be struggling with similar issues to show them that they are not alone.

Rebecca  uses the description of the videos to answer a few questions:

Q: Trichotillo-what?!
A: Trichotillomania. It’s a complex hair disorder, where I am compelled to tear it all out strand by strand. It’s classified as an ICD (similar to OCD).

Q: Where does the smile go?
A: Life happens, Depression hit rather hard. I’m on the mend.

However, the power of her story is in the pictures, taken every day, tracking her progress over time. Her illness, struggle, and bravery were captured, and at CaptureProof we find this inspiring. We commend Rebecca for using media to empower herself and others.
