In A Sense
When twelve year old Alfred grows up, he wants to teach people about his condition - Asperger syndrome. The purpose of this video was to explore Asperger's through Alfred's eyes, thus giving him a voice to teach.
The project was born after I took a series of pictures of Alfred earlier that year and discovered that he felt shocked and disempowered by my pictures as they didn't offer enough context. I decided to ask if he would work with me to tell his story.
Alfred not only worked with me but gave me creative opportunities beyond what I could achieve on my own. Alfred and I have plans to continue his story so we can record the changes as he grows towards adulthood. I can't wait.
