US Autism and Asperger Association World Conference – Day 2

What a whirlwind day!  We met so many interesting people –incredible minds.  As the conference was beginning, Chris and I set up a studio in an extra dining room, just off the lobby.  Throughout the day, we photographed portraits of people who were contributing to the autism conversation, doing amazing work in the field AND were on the spectrum themselves.

US Autism and Asperger Association World Conference, Day 1

October 27th – Day 1

Registration officially starts this evening.  We spent most the day installing the work in the main conference room and managing the kids responding to the changes in routine, sensory stimulation and possibly an inadvertent gluten or casein  infraction related to eating during travel.  The crew worked hard — even our little guys did their part and when we finished photographing the installation, we were delighted by an impromptu piano recital by Dr. Stephen Shore.
