I have rheumatism

is a photo project about rheumatic disorders.

Rheumatic disorders are autoimmune diseases where the immune system attacks the joints, and it causes e.g. pain, inflammation, stiffness, fatigue and many other symptoms.

With this project I want to show that rheumatism isn’t just an old people’s disease and that also young, active people might have it. I want to raise awareness and give the disease real faces. I'm aiming to portray the beautiful and sensitive sides of rheumatism. Here you can see the two parts I've done so far.

I'm constantly searching for people to photograph for this project. If you recognize yourself from the description and want to be photographed, please contact me: leyla.avsar(a)gmail.com. Currently I'm based in Oslo, so for now I'm searching for people especially in Oslo, Norway.
