CHRONIC ILLNESS AND MYALGIC ENCEPHALOMYELITIS. (M.E)

Here you will find a selection of images from different series taken throughout one year of my MA Photography, at Falmouth University. Here I am contemplating long term illness and more specifically Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E). M.E is now classified as a neurological condition affecting millions of people worldwide. It is a condition with debilitating fatigue. Its difficult to diagnose, has limited research resources, there are no treatments and no cures.

My work takes you on a journey through; Self-Portraits, Self-Healing, Therapy Rooms, En route to Therapy, Broken along with The Universe and Chinese Herbs. I have incorporated different visual communications strategies, sometimes overlapping. The exhibition will remain on-line for one year until 17 AUG 2019.

I am interested in the overlap between science and art and if you would be interested in working with me or would like me to consider a project you may be undertaking, please contact me here. For my various works see here.
