Chronic Pain Photo shoot

When I was doing my Chronic Pain Travelling Exhibition project for University one of the biggest challenges was conveying something that was invisible such as pain. I decided to put my photography skills to good use and arranged a photo shoot with chronic pain sufferer Shirley Townsley at Tentsmuir Forest in Fife. Using the main points I had gathered during my research into chronic pain conditions and having the trees likened to nerve pain receptors as a back drop, I came up with a number of good images which help to communicate the daily struggle living with a Chronic Pain Condition.

This project was featured on the
