Being photographed

Put your hands up to be photographed.

We have taken the obvious head on. Well of course it’s not funny, so what do we do about it? It’s amazing how many people have used the diagnosis to “do something with their life”. Become a painter, start a company, help people… But that’s life… it’s never what you expect.

WITH YOUR HELP THEY CAN COME OUT OF THE CLOSET

A book of positive stories

The book.

These photographs and stories will be exhibited and published as a book. The book will help raise the public consciousness about Parkinson’s Disease and stands as a testament to those who want to leave a positive message for others who feel at a loss because of their illness.
