Through the Eyes of Autism Project

A local photographer has started a new photography project:  Through the Eyes of Autism.  A quick blurb from the project’s Facebook page reads:

Exploring photography as a form of communication for those with autism. “Through the Eyes of Autism” is a community photographic art project by Wesley Knapp.

Cody, our oldest, was fortunate enough to be asked by Wes to participate.  Cody was loaned a camera for a week or two and took photos of… well, anything.  I am simply amazed at the photos I’m seeing Wes put up on the project page.  I cannot wait to see how the project evolves and, most especially, see all of the photos from the participants.

If you know an autistic person who might wish to participate, head on over there and get in touch with Wes.  It’s cool stuff!

FYI:  I was asked to grab a pic of Cody with a camera for the project.  Not so easy with photobombing goats!

    Thanks for the mention Diane. The fact that you even know what “photobombing” is, makes you worth knowing.

    Peace

    He may have the youngest taking part in this…getting lil’c set up to do the same thing…(give my camara a break LOL). Last time he took pics, he took “cecil like” pics as he called it. A favorite toy, the computer, the dogs, me, his daddy ect…

    Will be interesting to see what he comes up with.

    What a wonderful project. I bet a lot of people from the camp I used to work at would love to do this. To see the world through their eyes AND INTO THEIR HEARTS.

      I bet you can contact Wes and see when/if there’s a timeline for expanding into other areas. I’m sure he’d be excited to see more interest!
