In the Face of Disability 1b

 

Thai disabled kids in Art-for-All art camp 2003 & 2004

This group of photographs was my first entry into the world of people with disabilities. The Thailand Art-for-All art camp is held annually for about 100 kids with mix disabilities. The camp is usually held near Bangkok and I started as a volunteer artist at that camp in 2001. Since then I have been back every year to help out and to document what is going on at the art camp. This collection was shown in Thailand in 2005.
