Rob Olver is an analogue (film) photographer and artist who has lived experience of anxiety and depression.
Rob left a high-stress profession to travel around Australia for six months. During this trip he made a decision to move from Perth to the eastern states and pursue a career in photography, art and writing. He also works part-time as a carer.
Rob struggles in certain situations with anxiety and is easily triggered. Over the years, he has developed personal mechanisms to cope with a condition he knows will always be with him. Examples of these include taking time out from a stressful situation, doing stretches or going for long walks.Visit Rob’s website.
