People with disabilities face many problems every day. They have to cope with physical obstacles and systemic barriers in employment and civic programs and are often discouraged in whatever they attempt to do. However, the most difficult things to overcome are attitudes other people carry regarding people with disabilities. Ignorance, fear, misunderstanding or sometimes even hate community tends to show towards disabled people keep them from appreciating and experiencing their full potential. More often than not, community doesn’t even see the person, but only their disability.
This photo project is here to change it all.
Photographers from Zebedee Management, a modeling agency for people with disabilities, wanted to show what stands behind people’s disabilities through this amazing photo project.
“The photographers brief was to look past the disability and focus on ability, personality and uniqueness. This film captures the journey we went on and the empowerment everyone who was involved felt. The images are honest & beautiful.”
