Graves Eye Disease: Thyroid Awareness Month Photo Essay
When I was diagnosed with Graves Disease and Hyperthyroidism one thing I noticed was that I wasn’t taking many photos, not only was I not taking many, I didn’t care if I ever did.That bothered me! So when I started feeling a little bit better,I decided to shoot a series of photos about Thyroid/Graves Disease awareness.
I am tying to bring a little beauty the these ugly diseases that have tried to steal it from us. These few photos are the start of what has become a “lifetime” project. I hope you like them.
I was born and raised in Anchorage,Alaska ,where I lived until 2 months ago.I moved to Grand Junction,Colorado with hopes that a “change in latitude would change
change the attitude” and help with the healing.I studied art at Mississippi College and earned my degree in commercial photography from The Art Institute of Seattle.
Photography has been my passion since December 24,1982.Thank you dearthyroid for letting me share my passion with you
