Visible Invisible explores life living with illness, specifically the auto immune disease Multiple Sclerosis. MS affects people in many different ways, the symptoms of MS often are felt but not seen, as well as touching on both the physical and emotional issues associated with illness. The project mixes still life photographs and structured scenes to create insight into the world of living with MS. The series combines bright still life images and constructed moments in time to bring forth a lighter perspective on life with health issues. Multiple Sclerosis is a serious issue which affects many Australians and those around them, but Visible Invisible tries to take away the stigmas surrounding health and wellbeing by embracing the negatives and making them positive.
There’s an old saying, ‘if you don’t laugh, you’ll cry’ and this work has chosen to laugh.
