“We live in a world that would prefer to look away from people with autism.
However, within the art world, “to look” is the point”
Picturing Autism Vietnam is part of Photographer Debbie Rasiel’s journey across disparate landscapes, language barriers, and cultural divides to document the lives of families with living autism. In this exhibition, a collective portrait emerges of families and caregivers living with autism, loving their children, and continuing on with their lives.
