Travis Young tells the story of his unimaginably grim youth, his ensuing depression and two suicide attempts—and how he reclaimed his own unique outlook on life through the lens of a camera.
Travis shoots pictures everywhere he goes and develops the film in his Kansas City apartment, using photography not only as art and vocation, but as a therapeutic practice to frame the events and emotions of his life with context and understanding.
