Christopher's Girl Rosie
Project info

I have been working with Christopher since 1998. He and I studied Textiles together at the Canberra School of Art, and when I completed my degree I began working with him as his art support worker.

Christopher was born in 1973 and was diagnosed with autism at the age of 3, it was recomended that he be institutionalised. Luckily his mother disagreed.

He has 4 brothers and 2 of them also have collections. Christopher is a lover of panda's and through this series of photos I hope to portray him in a different light.

Christopher is hopeful that people will recognise the importance of the panda and rally to support them, his motto is "Save the Pandas" and this is how he farewells people.
