My Wheelchair as Mannequin piece was done while I was still in school in the spring of 2009. My most recent works deal with the wheelchair. I have been in a wheelchair my entire life due to cerebral palsy, for which I have had since birth. I have become fascinated with the idea of what the wheelchair could be used for rather than what it is used for. I think my whole purpose in photography in terms of the artistic aspect, is to bring a voice to people with disabilities and to bring more of an awareness. To me, someone with a disability is just as beautiful as someone who doesn’t have a disability.
