I am age 55, living in London (UK), and Irish. I have PD (diagnosed 18 months ago), am severely deaf and not now working.
I run a group for clergy abuse survivors, www.macsas.org.uk, and love to dabble in creative stuff.
I am not a 'professional,' just someone who suddenly has time to be creative. I took up photography on diagnosis and loved taking what I call "The left behinds"...things left behind, shoes in the street, cans of beer on windows sills, etc.
I think it reflects a loneliness of people's lives. A missing piece left behind. I am finishing off a PhD in Clergy sexual abuse of adult women, after which I hope to develop photography and retire from stressful occupations!
