Karolyn Gehrig’s #hospitalglam photo collection

I haven’t posted interesting disability-themed photos in quite awhile. Partly it’s because my initial enthusiasm for them has faded a bit. Related to that, I’ve started to realize that cool photos of disabled people usually don’t say as much as they seem to when you start paying attention to them. Once you get used to the idea that disabled people look hip and badass, it becomes sort of obvious and thus less remarkable. This is a good thing.

I am sharing links to Karyln Gehrig’s #hospitalglam collection because the photos are so beautiful and interesting, both in the context of disability and chronic illness, and in general as creative photography. Do click through and enjoy!
