Pedestrian Crossings have never been so accessible for the blind: when waiting, one touches the motorised dial, and, when it turns it indicates how it is safe to cross. To many this is not well known; however, it is a small step to retain safety and more independence to the blind.
As a patient living with Crohn’s, it is hard to indicate how society disables us. However, I took this image of the tablets I take first thing in the morning. It is vital that these are taken daily. These tablets prevent a relapse; something that can ultimately cause me to housebound because of the lack of bowel control. Crohn’s is very much a ‘silent’ disease and is not well known to many. However, I thought that arranging my morning dose in this way shows how the tablets help keep my bowel healthy.
I thought about when I read ‘The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time” by Mark Haddon when I took these photographs. The protagonist is autistic and suggests how he hates yellow: 5 yellow cars are a sign of bad luck, for example. Autistic people see a completely different world: of noise, colour and precision. Mathematics are more natural to the autistic; yet social situations and awareness to danger is significantly reduced. This is an interesting subject. I am going to find more quotations from the book and create my own photographic interpretation.
