I intend on creating a series about mine and other personal experiences with autism. I hope to engage people who don’t have a full understanding on autism, and educate them on how it works and how we live with it. This series will initiate a conversation otherwise not spoken, one that embraces disability and our personal vulnerabilities.
I will capture self portraits, as well as portraits of models with a form of autism. Turning us into characters where our autism is highlighted and embraced. I will create characters inspired by whimsy and fairytales, with surreal elements involved, as well as detail orientated portraits.
This series will be a true expression of my creative mind and intent. I will create this series to be sellable in a gallery, as well as have it feature on a highly followed autism awareness page. This will initiate a conversation in the art rhealm and with autism communities collectively. This series will be a way of seeing my autism come to life and truly explain to people certain parts of myself I otherwise couldn’t. I hope to also capture other peoples stories with autism and give them the gift of self-empowerment.
