My Sister Romy
The project, ‘My Sister Romy’ focuses on my sister, who has autism, severe learning difficulties and is non-verbal and the twenty four hour care she receives. My intention was to show the reality that families face when caring for a disabled family member, focusing particularly on the hidden, intimate elements of Romy’s care that many may be unaware of. I wanted to create images that could potentially help to alleviate stigma around disability, answering questions and perhaps provide more of an understanding of disability in general.
