About the Book
These are three important elements to consider in photography. They are also closely intertwined in the experiences of Autistic and synesthetic artists, Russell Harrison and Jacky Skye.
In this photo book, these artists come together in considering what makes their experiences of the world unique, and what makes them uniquely human.

My academic background is in anthropology. Much of the cognitive work behind what I create is informed by that background, although the actual process of creation tends to be intuitive. Often images, or fragments of images, come into my head fully formed with no obvious connection to any research or preparation for a piece. I find those connections as I work on the piece and draw them out in the final product. I work in acrylic paint and in ink illustrations. I also make jewelry and porcupine quillwork, and do some photography. My work deals heavily with themes of boundaries, communication, connection and disconnection. Visually, I draw inspiration from my love of gardening and hiking in the parklands near my home. The images I produce reflect on my experiences navigating identity, and exploring human interaction with landscape.
