[Photos] : « Limb Difference Awareness » met en valeur les personnes handicapées

Le projet « Limb Difference Awareness » a pour but que la différence soit acceptée par les autres mais aussi par soi-même. Les talents ont tous entre 2 et 54 ans, et assument totalement leur handicap sur les photos.

In April, 19 #Zebedee #Models from ages 2 to 54 took part in this stunning #bodyconfidence shoot with photographer Elise Dumontet. All the Zebedee models have either been born with a #limbdifference or had an #amputation, the images are a celebration of their #selflove and their body acceptance. Whether their difference is acquired (through cancer, meningitis, accident, diabetes, ex-veterans) or congenital, they really don’t want to fall on their feet anymore, they simply want to be able to stand tall, with and/or without prosthetics. We all know positive representation matters, be it in the arts, in fashion or in the media. And yet, these guys can probably count on their fingers how many times they’ve seen themselves being represented. Should the shoe ever be on the other foot, how would that make you feel? This is beautiful teen model KIRYN. Kiryn has been subjected to repeated bullying at school because of her limb difference. Fortunately Kiryn is a strong young lady with a brilliant support network, but I know it’s been very hard at times. Kiryn may only have one middle finger to stick up to the bullies but she has got an army of supporters at #teamzebedee sticking our middle fingers up to all those stupid & ignorant individuals. ? . . THIS IS REAL BEAUTY? . . . #limbdifferenceawareness #limbdifference #teenmodel #zebedeemanagement #teenmodel #teenlife #bodylove #bodypositive #body

?Limb Difference Campaign ? This is DAN: Losing my arm and shoulder has been unequivocally the best thing that’s happened to me! It’s important to raise awareness to limb differences as it’s only once you lose the use of a limb through, in my case, traumatic amputation, that you realise the importance and significance of just how much you rely on even a finger or a thumb!! I have never really faced any direct negative issues, however it does get frustrating when I get on the tube and when people who are sat in the disabled seats look at me realise they’re sat where they are but then carry on with what their doing, it doesn’t bother me really because clearly they need the seat more than me!!! Ignorance is bliss! Unless they’re pregnant, elderly or even have a disability themselves I always offer my seat because manner cost nothing!

? Limb difference campaign ? This is NANCY: I wasn’t born with one leg. I became an #amputee aged 30 following an accident. Some people thought if I had children they would be amputees too, but my difference isn’t due to a generic condition. Becoming an amputee was extremely hard at first back in the 1990’s because different meant ‘outsider’, ‘not normal’, ‘weirdo’.People starred at me with shocked judgemental expressions and would wonder how I could possibly get on with life, let alone have children. Raising awareness and increasing representation is so important to challenge misconceptions. We never know what life is going to throw at us. Life-changing injuries are exactly that but it doesn’t mean that your life is over. Help is out there for physical support but the rest is up to you. Life in the 21st century is better for people with differences. I want to show society that I have a positive outlook and self determination to be happy. I have two healthy children with two legs each and feel no less a person with only one leg. I’ve gained more in confidence and inner strength having lost my leg than I ever did with two legs. Nancy has had lots of work through Zebedee as well as being a cover girl for Grazia Uk.
