Product Description

So many stories are told of persons with disabilities from the outside looking in. Often portrayed as tragic and/or brave, it is easy to lose sight of our common humanity. We are seen as other.

Since being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1988, I have resisted and resented this attitude whenever I encounter it in person, print, or online. In June 2008 I started taking self portraits with the intention of showing from the inside the day-to-day life of a person with a disability; that person being myself.
