Aspies For Freedom


El mundo visible es un milagro cotidiano para quienes tienen ojos y oídos; y todavía me caliento agradecido las manos al fuego del antiguo hogar, aunque cada año ese fuego se alimente de la leña seca de más y más recuerdos del pasado....mi nombre es Dann y tengo sindrome de asperger...

“In my opinion, observing people and sometimes photographing them without their knowledge is acceptable when done with the kind of empathetic gaze just mentioned. Of course, each person has to decide this for himself. It could also be considered questionable, how people use posed profile pictures on Facebook in order to be appealing. I think the unobserved photographing of people in their everyday life can also contribute, in general, to a more empathetic understanding of the world. This should never be about capturing photographic “spoils”. I realize i’m walking a thin line here, but I always try to remain aware of this. The moment I sense a lack of consent or catch people at a bad moment, I immediately delete the picture. That’s good about the camera display. But this photography in a state of flux, which dives into life with the camera, risks embarrassment, and has no safety zone whatsoever, continually brings forth something truthful, something genuine. I’m sure of that. Its also the joy of experiencing the unpredictability and derangedness of life, the preposterous situations that arise, how the bodies act among themselves, and how they dress, establish nearness, or keep their distance. All this is infinitely fascinating. I find such contact with everyday life around the world endlessly inspiring.” —
