On location at the midcentury apartment

I used to not feel particularly at ease in front of the camera, and it used to br a challenge for me to pose. I was always aware of my left arm's position and its lack of mobility. One of the most important thing for me ever since my accident and consequent brachial plexus injury, used to find ways to dress and not appear physically challenged. I really only wore clothes with pockets so that my arm could be safely tucked away; if I purchased something without a pocket, then I would get my lovely seamster to add one.

This was my first art directed photo shoot, shot on a camera, not on an iPhone. These photos were taken at the midcentury apartment in Brighton by photographer Ania Smelskaya.
