I want to explore how we live with it, love it, maybe sometimes loath it and how it's a part of who we are but not the sum of all our parts.

A bit of background:

On February 20th 2021, it will be 1 year since I was diagnosed with ADHD. Realising that it was nearly a year ago got me thinking about how I’d like to mark the occasion, celebrate it and raise awareness about ADHD, specifically, how it impacts women through a photography project.

I want to explore how we live with it, love it, maybe sometimes loath it and how it's a part of who we are but not the sum of all our parts.

I began looking for up to 12 women (I now have 20!) to have their portrait taken and do a short chatty interview with me about themselves and their experience with ADHD. The plan was then to publish those profiles on my website and Instagram.

I am delighted by how many women have already reached out about joining in with this project. It's reassuring to know so many women want to share their experiences! 

Where I am now:

The support from the women involved has pushed this project to become bigger than I originally thought possible. As such, my plan has evolved to create an exhibition in a central London gallery.

I have found and costed a Covid safe space to do the portraits and interviews, an image lab and printers for the photos and interviews to be printed at the quality they deserve and a gallery to hold the exhibition for 7 days.

The only thing I need now is the funds to do it all.

Let's make 'Women with ADHD and Me - Profiles of 20 Women' happen
