My name is Bi-Ling (Belinda Chang). When I was a 18 month old baby, I contracted infantile paralysis, commonly known as polio. But this has not prevented me from living my life to the fullest. I have studied abroad, traveled around the world, anxious to see new sights, meet new people, and have unique experiences. Yet in 2007, I contracted another movement-inhibiting disease: Parkinson's. Breaking my right fibula in 2010 was the final straw, and it's getting increasingly difficult to expand my radius of travel or to just merely move. I didn't want to just sit in my room moaning and complaining, so I began experimenting with a basic camera that I can carry easily on crutches in my limited physical condition to shoot the simple, commonplace, and often overlooked beauty around me.
I cannot walk anymore now and need help from others. If my work can be seen and appreciated, maybe I can start a new career, that would be great!!
