Artist's statement

Andrew Hodges, who suffered an acquired brain injury when he was 15, is assisted in his regular exercise routine by his father, Ken. Although he remains sharply intelligent, Andrew requires constant assistance and care, much of which comes from his ageing parents. This photo is part of a series in partnership with Kickstart Arts and Headway, documenting the stories of an inspiring group of Tasmanians living with acquired brain injuries.
