My Photo Project Shows That Stuttering Should Not Be Ashamed Of
If you’ve ever talked to a person who stutters, you’ve probably noticed the personal and often unique tics and movements people use to get through a difficult sound or sentence. Those who stutter often feel self conscious about these expressions, and I believe one of the big factors in why is because they are never represented anywhere.
Representation matters, and that’s why I was thrilled when members of Málbjörg, the National Stuttering Association in Iceland, contacted me about shooting pictures for a calendar for them. Unfortunately, we didn’t manage to get enough people who were willing to stutter in front of the camera to make a full calendar from these pictures, but thankfully, we did them anyway. I think showing these unique expressions is an important step towards normalising them, and towards promoting awareness about stuttering.
