Nairobi, Kenya, 2017.
Portrait of a self advocate.
1 in 7 people in the world are persons with disabilities. It is about fifteen percent of the world's population. But how is their story told?
Today the media continues to portray persons with disabilities as passive , in need of treatment, charity and benevolence.
Where there may be a rare positive headline concerning persons with disabilities, it often depicts them as superheroes having accomplished a feat which society could never expect of them.
Those messages are misinformed.
Those stories continue to have at their base the division of “us” and “them”, absent of a shared humanity.
