Facing MS is an online photographic project, interviewing individuals living with MS who are dealing with the uncertainty of this progressive disease in their own unique ways, and on their own terms. View the portraiture and read the narratives at www.FacingMS.org.
Including participants from diverse ages, stages of disease, race, cultures and economic backgrounds, this project captures the intimate expressions of six individuals as they discuss the emotional complexity of living with disease.
As a collaboration of artist Elizabeth Jameson and photographer Richard Bermack, the goal of the project is to give permission to stare directly at those who deal with disability and provide a glimpse into the lives of those who face the unpredictable challenges of illness.
Our goal is to expand FacingMS and build the narrative around chronic illness, adding stories from people of all backgrounds and experiences.
