Abstract

These digitally manipulated photographic self portraits were made in collaboration with people with congenital physical disabilities. A different disability is superimposed onto each portrait of me in such a way that the composite figure looks convincing. On realising that all portraits are of the same person I hope the viewer will begin to question their reaction to seeing a disabled body, and to perceive the disability as separate from the person. By questioning the boundaries of what is considered beautiful and/or acceptable with regard to body form this work challenges public perception of and attitude towards physical disability.
