Anthony | Head On Photo Festival

Anthony

Photographer's Name: 
Louis Lim

Anthony — a young, bright and amiable university student — was born with cerebral palsy. Like many 20-year-olds, Anthony struggles with his personal and physical identity. Through ongoing conversations he revealed that a large part of his struggle was accepting his body, measured against the "ideal" physical symmetry portrayed in dominant representations of "desirable" bodies. I began exploring Anthony's life attempting to address his struggle and illuminate his aspirations and goals. Like other young men, Anthony is passionate about life and aspires to be seen as a sexual being and to be socially accepted.
