This series of photographs are based around Nathan, his mother and her wheelchair, reflecting their relationship and their individuality. He uses textual materials to illustrate how his mother also used to use textual materials to support his wellbeing yet her wheelchair also reflects his mothers vulnerability.
The textual materials also reflect back to Nathan’s troubled times with Autism, simple every day materials from glue to fabrics are handmade and used in the photoshoots to present a time when materials calmed his mood.
The photographs are created within his Mother’s home, a place where the meaning behind the work has taken place over time.
The variation of shape and colours reflects his Mother’s opinion of how he perceived the world differently.
