Alex Dafalla is nineteen years old and is affected by Aspergers syndrome.  I had been aware of him as his mother, Sheila runs a support network for people with autism, their carers and families. Alex became very engaged in the project and never declined any opportunity to be photographed. It didn’t take long to find out his interests but I realized that it would take time to get to know the parts of him most affected by the syndrome.  I decided then to focus only on Alex as getting to know him more meant that I could hopefully show that there was more to him than a syndrome. The final piece, a poster, shows the six dimensions of Alex as a way of highlighting how much more there is to this remarkable young man.
