Growth and Optimism

After a traumatic event it’s not easy to be optimistic. Today’s group at the Dylan Thomas Centre were encouraged to examine their own personal growth and also look for potential in their surroundings. A sunny spring day is the perfect setting for optimism and growth but even without the sunshine there’s plenty of meaning that can be drawn from any surrounding. Here we looked at doorways and contrasts between old and new architecture as metaphors for how we were feeling.

This project is a ten week course run for the Traumatic Brain Injury Srvice and held at the Dylan Thomas Centre. Its primary focus is on using photography in a therapeutic way to examine personal growth, positivity, and to develop self-esteem. Already the results and the philosophy behind participants’ photographs are showing the potential of what they are capable of. It will be really exciting to see what this class produce as the technical and personal skills of this class advance over the coming weeks. More results next Wednesday!
