Disabled people seen at work in new photo exhibition

Generic Disabled Person

A photography exhibition which challenges myths about disability and employment has opened in Liverpool.

Featuring large photographs taken in the city and from countries across the world, Working Lives: Here and There shows active disabled people in their places of work.

The images have been created to challenge negative myths surrounding disability and employment. Colin McPherson, the photographer who put the show together, says: “I wanted to produce something that looked positive, direct, optimistic and powerful,” and for this the disabled subjects had to be seen working productively, he says.
