Shingi Rice

I was diagnosed with a heart murmur in 2011 which wasn’t treated until 2013. This led to currently owning a mechanical heart valve and having to be on strong medication.

This experience made me help raise awareness of invisible disabilities.

I started this project back in 2014 which is still ongoing. I interview, style and photograph individuals with very diverse conditions.
