I am a documentary and Portrait photographer. My work’s focus is to breakdown stigmas and change perceptions of identity within contemporary society.  The same as you began from having a disability myself. Since a young age I have stigmatised myself through my differences. I wanted to change the notion of people with dual sensory impairment and additional disabilities. It became apparent over time, that everyday objects and environments are very important. We use our senses all the time but most of that is by default and not conscious awareness. Most of the time we take our senses for granted. In this series, I aim to represent the perception of disability.
