In Her Eyes
‘In Her Eyes’ is a personal, collaborative project which explores my visual interpretation of the symptoms and side effects of a teenage girl, living with Asperger’s. Asperger’s syndrome is an autism spectrum disorder which is identified by decreased capabilities in social interaction and nonverbal communications. It's often hard to diagnose, especially in girls. ‘In Her Eyes’ is a series of photographs documented from an outsider’s point of view. After interacting with my sister and understanding her struggles, I have interpreted these visually through a range of self-portraits, accompanied by her thoughts. This project pushed me to understand what she lives with on a daily basis. It’s driving force is the lack of understanding in a female diagnosis.
