When I looked at the criteria for this assignment I was a bit overwhelmed. I had to choose between photographing the unseen and using props. I wasn’t sure which to pick, it took me sometime to pick. Eventually I settled on photographing the unseen, as I thought it would be very interesting to try and convey something that cannot be seen using photography. I made a list of things that were unseen, after I narrowed it down I choose Disability, in particular Fibromygylma.
I choose disability as, not all disabilities are visible, millions of people are affected by hidden illnesses, they have to deal with them and many who don’t understand disabilities judge them on what they see and not what they know about the person. People with hidden disabilities are unfairly judged.
