Semester One photo essay. This is my brother, Billy. He is 15 years old and has autism spectrum disorder. He loves music, water and experimenting with different textures & tastes. Billy is non-verbal and communicates with a speech program on his iPad - yet he manages to have the cheekiest sense of humour I know. I think he comprehends a lot more than we realize; perhaps just in a different way to you and I. Photographing Billy has made me want more than ever to know the thoughts behind the curious expressions I’ve captured.
