Photographer Steve Kean’s project Spina Bifida – Front to Back is as much about the dignity of people as it is about the condition. It is about how people with spina bifida inhabit their bodies. For each subject, Kean produces two images - a traditional portrait on a white background to introduce the viewer to the subjects and a second image of the subject’s back. Steve says of this exhibit, “For the first time in my artistic practice, I am examining how people like me, who live with this condition, view themselves and seek to claim their power and beauty.”
