Artist's statement

Sean's passions are family, photography, technology, equality and cycling. Sean broke his neck in a cycling accident. His partner and a complete stranger performed mouth-to-mouth on him for nearly five hours before paramedics arrived. Too often society focusses on people's disabilities and overlooks the person. The aim of my portrait is to focus on people who have disabilities, showing them as people who have the same passions as everyone else.
