The Adaptations project aims to build awareness of largely unseen and unheard disability communities through a photographic investigation of adapted, fabricated and customized objects used to assist its members in their daily lives. Photographer Nicola Simpkin-Hill’s forensic yet open-ended approach is grounded in her lived experience of disability as the mother of a 21-year-old daughter with cerebral palsy. Hill understands first-hand the challenges of the disability landscape and advocates for a deeper understanding of the lived experience of these communities and further inclusion of their perspectives and voices in wider society.
