autism

    Newer Older

    when i arrived to photograph a story about parents dealing with autism i found a young boy hiding under the diningroom table. he remained there the entire time-every so often pushing himself feet first into the light from the glass door which opened onto the backyard...this was the only time i saw his face.

      wow, what a story and great moment that he had eye contact with your camera... i wonder if he liked to play with his mom's shoe under the table...

      not only heartwarming, but motivated me want to read up on autism (link to Wikipedia entry)

      I like the way this shot shows such a wealth of warmth. The eye contact is incredible but the feeling is that the child and the family share a common friendship despite the difficulties.

      Brilliant shot, I love how you composed the frame. I first saw this attributed to you via: www.environmentalhealthnews.org/ehs/news/autism-clusters

      wonderful capture. My son likes to hide in closed spaces and under tables.
