This is an old picture of my daughter. It was taken when we believed that the boys had trouble recognising facial expressions and refused to look at pictures or images of faces, short of line drawings. She was delighted to take centre stage and provide us with lots of portraits to demonstrate different emotions. We hoped that they’d be more willing to look at their sister’s face in a photograph, and they were.
I can’t remember how long we worked upon that particular campaign as it was a long time ago and we knew very little about autism then. However, I do know now, that it was probably one of my more futile campaigns, but hindsight is so often 20/20 as “Kristina Chew” points out in her recent “post.”
Even though this is supposed to be wordless Wednesday, some things just don’t make any sense without a matt and a frame, or what we in the trade call “scaffolding.”
If you’re in need of a little giggle, interested in lineage, focus and details, then scroll down for a little more, or a double post.
