Great Interactions = Great Pictures

Celebrating The Life Experiences Of People Who Have Learning Disabilities & Autism in photographs.

Until 10 April the National Media Museum in Bradford is hosting a free exhibition of photographs from the Great Interactions book by Polly Braden.

Photographer Polly Braden has spent the past two years working with some of those supported by the charity MacIntyre, capturing everyday moments, achievements and milestones. The subject is complex but the aim is simple: to highlight everyday interactions and life-changing experiences.

Polly’s photographs show the barriers faced in simply trying to have fair opportunities in life, but they are also inspiring. They are filled with moments that would have once seemed difficult – from finding employment and using public transport to gaining a measure of independence, graduating from high school and getting married.
