An event coming to Central Michigan University Monday night is aimed at raising disability awareness through the power of images.
Artist and author Patricia Lay-Dorsey will be speaking about her photo exhibit and book Falling Into Place; A self portrait about day-to-day living with Multiple Sclerosis.
The 71-year old Lay-Dorsey was diagnosed with MS 25-years ago. As a marathon runner and bicyclist, she says she couldn’t imagine how her life would change.
Lay-Dorsey said she became frustrated with stories or images of people with disabilities. They were often created by non-disabled persons. She said she thought someone who was disabled themselves finally had to tell the story from the inside and hopefully prompt conversations.”I want this to be a trigger, these pictures. I don’t want these to be pictures of me or you know, or even disability, per sae. But what it is to me is saying “look, we all have something that we deal with, and if you haven’t had it yet, you’re gonna have it. And the key is, how do we handle it?”
