For the 're-think' unit I'm continuing with the 'middle land' a story which takes the viewer into not only my life as a profoundly deaf artist but simply I ask you to wear my shoes and see life from my perspective.
To live, walk and breathe my every day as a person to see what it's like first hand as a person who doesn't always catch what people are saying a person who can't always follow or do certain tasks.
Just this afternoon something caught my eye as I was looking at the British Journal of Photographers it was more a phrase which was mentioned in the article that moved me so much that I have to write about it as I feel it relates to what I'm doing for my 're-think'.
"Think about what you want to say, think about what you care about and then photograph that".
Well to be honest I have rather a lot to say about my chosen documentary for re-think because I do care about it as it's my life the only life I've lived so far and yes I want to photograph it and to share my story with others so that you can try to understand people like myself. As I feel when someone hears that I have a hearing impairment then first two things they do is exaggerate their lip movements and shout.
