Not my usual thing but its true and I have a new phone to play with :)
I know this is not my usual type of post but there are alot of people on here who love photography. I want to give you the opportunity to own this camera. Zenza Bronica SQ-Ai Medium Format camera. Its a great camera. I just don’t have the facilities to develop the photographs. Take a look!
“I may not look disabled but you don’t look stupid either”
My sisters bumper sticker - I had never really though about disability and it hasn’t always been an important part of my life. For my sister it is her reality, a physical disability she has to live with day to day. It is part of my life now and I know she is no different but there are always some people who judge unfairly and persecute others because they are different - whether that be a disability or anything else.
This photograph is one image taken from a series I took trying to show that my sister is no different to anybody else. She is smarter than I am and lives life to to the full. Each photograph represents an aid or piece of technology my sister needs for day to day life. Each photograph also has a memorable photograph projected somewhere in it.
I hope the message is clear.
This was a photograph I took as part of a project based on Claustrophobia. Claustrophobia is a reality for its sufferers however as a non sufferer I needed real life stories to help me decide how to set about photographing this experience. Using medical information and descriptions from sufferers I came to the conclusion that claustrophobia is primarily about control. Concentrating on hands as a symbol of control I have produced a series of images that I believe portray the feeling of claustrophobia. I would be interested to hear your experiences of claustophobia and perhaps see some other artistic interpretations.
