Capability is a photographic series about the strength and power of individuals with prosthetics or amputations. Questioning the definition of ‘Disability’ and how they are presented within the UK, the project focuses on collaborating with a group of individuals who have either been born without a limb or lost one. This project depicts their amazing capabilities and remarkable strength.
I am passionate about communicating the fundamental normality and everyday competence of people with disabilities. The images show people with amputations and prosthetics on display, portraying their strength in an activity of their choice.
‘Disability’ by definition, refers to a deficiency or dysfunction and as such evokes negative associations. Yet, although all the people portrayed here, lack a limb, they do not consider themselves as less able than others. Each participant asserts that they are just as capable and as strong as any other person.
