Self Adjustment

Over at Dylan Thomas Centre today considering Dylan’s words “We are not wholly bad or good…”

Who we are changes as we grow. There’s the person we are, the person we were, and the person we are yet to be. There’s the side we show to family and friends, and the side we let loose in public. Somewhere at the heart of it all is a life story that our self would choose to tell.

How we choose to portray ourselves in a photograph is a valuable way of sharing this story. For participants from the Traumatic Brain Injury Service it’s an empowering way of opening up dialogue about their journey through life so far. These self-portraits are far beyond the vernacular idea of a ‘selfie’ and are careful considerations on the concept of identity.

Every picture tells a thousand words.
