To mark the International Day of Disabled Persons THIS-ABILITY Photography Exhibition challenges stereotypes surrounding disability. The term ‘disability’ is broad and encompasses both visible and non-visible conditions. Society’s assumption that disabled people want to overcome their disability fails to recognise disability as an identity, often overlooking the strengths that come with it. Photographers worldwide were invited to submit images that celebrated the story, uniqueness and character of their models rather than their disability. We wanted to see images that challenge perceptions which stand in the way of a holistic view of a person’s achievements, success and accomplishments. Once these boundaries are removed, we see the individual emerge from within. This-Ability unmasks, myth-busts and educates. Giving us all the chance of thoughtful reflection, learning and inspiration.
