Portraits of Persons with Disabilities is a passion project. 

One billion people in the world are living with a disability. A group that is significantly underrepresented. This underrepresentation has a major impact on the attitudes towards persons with disabilities (PWD) in society. It also has a major affect in the way PWD view themselves. By changing perceptions, we stand to change societal attitudes, quality of life and even public policy and law. 

The Portraits of Persons with Disabilities Project aims to change the perception of PWD starting with the people themselves. Through photography, we create a respectful portrait of each person's unique form. These images are shared through social media and curated into a collection meant to be shared in a gallery setting. The goal is to make society and PWD familiar with PWD, leading to further social integration and change.
