Autism: Life on the Spectrum
I wanted to update my blog to explain what I've been up to recently. It's been unusually quiet because over the past several weeks I have been working on a major project, and the final one for my degree in photography at the University of Hertfordshire.
I'm happy to announce that after around 30 weeks of project proposals, assessments, research and practical work, my project Autism: Life on the Spectrum is finally open as an exhibition at the Tackley Village Hall in Tackley, Oxfordshire.
The exhibition is comprised of twelve framed images that depict autism in a creative and abstract way, using metaphor and related symbology in an attempt to make the condition understandable by the public.
The exhibition is open from 07/12/2018 to 12/12/2018 during normal shop opening hours. If you live too far away or it simply isn't possible to visit the exhibition in person, you can see the images by navigating to https://www.davidginn.com/portfolio2
I have also created a special guide book that explains each image in greater detail and includes some of the concept sketches I created while planning the project. It is available as both a printed book and as a PDF. They can be purchased here: http://www.blurb.co.uk/b/9087884-autism-life-on-the-spectrum
Prints of all but one of the images in the exhibition are also for sale. The last piece, entitled Cabinet Card is a one of a kind due to the effort involved in it's creation, and costs slightly more than the others. If you are considering buying one please contact me via my contact form: https://www.davidginn.com/contact Each print is made on request, and a limited run of ten of each will be printed. Prints are signed, numbered and provided set in a mount but without a frame.
The exhibition itself cost around £300 in materials to create. If you would like to help cover the costs without buying a guide book or a print you can donate via this link: https://paypal.me/davidginnphoto
I hope you enjoy looking through the photographs, and please share a link to them with your friends and anyone you believe may have an interest in autism.
