Entry Title: "STEVEN"
Name: John McCafferty , United Kingdom
Category and Expertise: Children, Student

Entry Description: I have photographed over sixty students with learning disabilities from four special educational needs schools in the london borough of barnet because such children and teenagers are poorly represented in photography. They need to be seen as real people.

About the Artist:

I damaged my spinal cord in 2003 and became a wheelchair user giving me a slower limited life but offering me the opportunity to think more freely and become a portrait photographer. I graduated from Middlesex University with a BA in Photography in 2010 and am now also studying an MA degree.
