Awesome submission. Cool blog, Natacha.
Disabled people are generally seen as being asexual and genderless, and images of us are largely confined to medical or charity based usage. But in fact we are as able to form relationships and live life to the full as everybody else, and we are represented in every walk of life.
Ashley is a wonderful photographer to model for, as he is able to show beauty and strength where others see only ugliness and dis-ability. I have collaborated with him on several occasions for various projects, and I feel very proud whenever I look at the photographs he has taken of me.
Photography by Ashley Savage from the exhibition “Bodies of Difference”. There are higher resolution (but not downloadable) versions of these and more photos at his website: http://www.savageskin.co.uk/Bodies_Of_Difference.html
