Medical Muse

Medical Muse is a series of assisted-self portraits created in collaboration with Oscar Vinter in May 2022, a month after I underwent neurosurgery.

Disabled Power I.

Following the surgery I was feeling powerless, my body had changed drastically again and my existence would need to shift too.

Disability is beautiful I.

My identity felt fractured and I needed to remember who I was and create something static that could ground me in a specific time and place.

I  am my own muse I.

Through the photo series we explore the nuances of my disabled experience; my power, vulnerability and sensuality.
