Long ago I had a choice to make with my life. Either continue down a dark path or use my creativity and pent-up energy to capture the life of someone I love who lives with “invisible" disabilities.
My endeavor with this project has been to bring VISUAL REPRESENTATION'S of what is often still stigmatized and hidden in the modern world. What is pushed away, shunned and made to be kept a secret. Real life with a disability.
Feelings, emotions and diagnosis all have great definitions. But colors, shapes and form, THAT has power. The power to say without words what is happening, the power to educate the ignorant and the power to heal a broken person.
In 1913 Henrik Ibsen coined the phrase "A picture is worth a thousand words." He wasn't wrong, seeing a thousand words in one image can haunt you longer then hearing them described to you.
