After Peter Limbrick included a profile of my work in the TAC Bulletin, I asked him if there would be an interest from readers in my photographing for them. He kindly offered for me to put the question on the TAC Bulletin.
I thought it a useful opportunity to seek feedback relevant not only to my work.
- Can photographs of people with disabilities be a powerful tool to inform and improve understanding?
- Should photographers with a particular interest in photographing adults and children with disabilities play an active part in raising awareness, by collaborating with organisations, to include researchers, clinicians, parent support groups and charitable bodies?
- If so, could photographers be involved in drawing up ethical and consent guidelines to ensure that the dignity of the individual photographed is not undermined?
- Would the recipients of this forum be interested in collaborating with me as a photographer with relevant experience photographing in sensitive areas and who is concerned about the ethical implications of my work?
