portrait + writing workshop
In November, 2016 I held a workshop with the football team & staff where I took a portrait of each person and had them fill out a brief questionnaire. I asked them to write about how they came to Gallaudet, how they identify themselves within the Deaf community, what football means to them as well as what their future plans are.
Each portrait has been paired with a selection from the corresponding questionnaire, including their identification of Deaf, Hard of Hearing or Hearing.
Here I've included further excerpts from their writing as well as a selection of portraits.
