A Gentle Emergence
I was diagnosed at the age of three years and three months with a sensori-neural bi-lateral hearing loss. This is the most common type of permanent hearing loss and can result in different levels of deafness. Mine is a moderate hearing loss which means I can hear some sounds but at muted levels.These photographs represent my soundless mornings, the time before I put my hearing aids in, a time when the limits of my hearing actually provide me a comfort, allowing me to more gradually engage with the day ahead. After this time in the morning, my day is enhanced by the wonderful technology that opens up a sound filled, busy world.
