This is Me: Portraits of Pathlight

This is Me: Portraits of Pathlight is a photography project that focuses the camera lens on people served by Pathlight throughout western Massachusetts.

Renowned local photographers have partnered with Pathlight to shoot portraits that convey the strength, beauty, complexity and personality of people with intellectual disabilities and/or autism. The portrait subjects come from all parts of western Massachusetts and represent a broad spectrum of abilities, ages, and personalities.

Too often we see that people with disabilities are pushed to the edge of the frame, or are viewed through a sentimental filter that oversimplifies the fullness of the person. At Pathlight we believe that the people we serve are the directors of their own dreams and goals, and they are front and center as the stars in all we do.

This project, and the portraits individually and collectively as a show, are a stunning visual representation of the person-focused mission of Pathlight.
