missouri photo workshop outtakes

The editing process can be a hard, hard thing and sometimes you have to get rid of photos you like — drown you puppies, kill your darlings, you get the drill. Here are some photos that didn't make the cut for my Missouri Photo Workshop story, "Jeffrey: Old and Young." community opportunitymentally disabled

mentally disabledHere’s my story summary: Jeffrey is both old and young — his spirit is young, his body is old and his brain is in limbo. He enjoys Halloween, silly T-shirts and roller coasters, but as a mentally disabled man approaching 65, he is showing signs of dementia. Though he is a very social person that loves to introduce himself to strangers (much to the chagrin of his caretakers), he often forgets people he knows or mixes up names. Regardless of his fluctuating state of mind, Jeffrey is a lovable character with a contagious personality, but it remains to be seen how his developing age will affect his everyday life.
