Alice Combe : Visual Impairments-Keratoconus

Research

Un-commissioned | New Talent

Brief:
I created this project in collaboration with visually impaired (VI) members of the Royal National College for the Blind (RNC), to expand public understanding of VI. Based on interviews, I created a series of portraits of people with different VI, in the way that they see.
Additional Information:
This portrait depicts artist Lennie Jordan, who has Keratoconus - a non-inflammatory eye condition in which the normally round dome-shaped clear window of the eye progressively thins causing a cone-like bulge to develop. The purpose is to educate people about the different types of VI people have.

Biography:
As an illustrator, I am interested in creating work with impact. My work visually highlights socio-environmental disputes throughout society, to help bring attention to the articles and companies my illustrations are anchored to.
