Current Written Statement for the Bishops Art Prize 2012

I have a dream, similar to that of Mr. Martin Luther King Jr.; a desire for human equality. Growing up with an older brother born with Downs Syndrome, I became involved in an outer world and a society built up on a hierarchy involving status, not only based on race, religion and wealth, but on the physical and mental condition one possessed. With my photographic entry, I present the opportunity for the onlooker to make eye contact with a person, enabling equalisation between them and creating reflection on the human condition.
