Artist’s statement

My brother was diagnosed with autism at the age of three. Jay is largely non-verbal, which has shaped my relationship with him. Through our passion for photography, I have captured Jay’s raw emotions and feelings that he would not be able to express through speech. Upon closer examination of my work, there is hidden text in the shadows stating what specialists had reported to my parents. They told my parents that he would never love us. He has proved them wrong.
