I'm a wheelchair street photographer and can no longer carry a camera. I was diagnosed at 26 years old with a gnarly disease called ALS... Slowly becoming completely paralyzed. ALS is stealing my strength, but not my found passion for street photography. I mounted my camera to the armrest of my wheelchair and started taking pictures in my front-yard. So I kind of rolled into street photography naturally (or for lack of other options) in my ordinary neighborhood of Redlands, CA. I'm in love. I realized that my wheelchair destroys all social boundaries. I hope those who view my work, will better understand this different perspective I'm experiencing. A perspective in which everyone you encounter is so incredibly nice, a world where no one is intimidated by your physical appearance and eager to have a conversation with you. I fear no one and no one fears me.
