Today we mourn the loss of Robin Williams. It is so sad to see someone succumb to depression so badly that they end their lives.
When I first developed an interest in portrait photography I had a little list of celebrities I would love to photograph one day, and Robin Williams was up at the top of that list.
The world lost a great entertainer today to mental illness. It is time we stop brushing mental illness off as if it were nothing, it is one of the biggest epidemics in the world today. There is nothing wrong with seeking out help if you are feeling depressed, no matter what society might think.
Today is a sad sad day.
RIP Robin Williams.
