Now. There is a very conversation beginning around invisible disability.
Looking at John side on as in this image it’s not readily apparent he has Down’s Syndrome. I like that because chances are you,like me, saw John and not his disability first.
I’m interested then in the way we react to those who do not have a visible disability. Mental Health issues are case in point and that’s why they are one of the most challenging to represent with a visual medium like photography.
Work began with the project Honesty and I’ll be returning to the stigma around Mental Health in future.
