A RIDDINGS man has tackled his depression head on with a fascinating photographic look at the nature of humanity.

Tony Fisher, 57, of Iveagh Walk, launched Into the Light last week at the Rethink Mental Illness community service, at The Croft, in Ripley.

The exhibition draws on his 17-year battle with depression caused by the loss of his parents and his wife to motor neurone disease, in quick succession.

It sees the father-of-two, who lost touch with photography during his darkest days, re-connect with his art.
