Geraldine Charity 

Geraldine has always been a keen photographer, capturing family, friends and neighbours – in the 80s she began a project of photographing all her neighbours standing in their doorways. 

Twelve years ago Geraldine was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and these days she is confined to her bedroom. She now takes all her photos with an iPad, from one position on her bed.  

Even as her physical world has shrunk, technology has expanded it. Her iPad has provided a way to continue with her photography and keep her creativity alive, focussing in on colourful details that would otherwise be missed, if moving around was still an option. At the same time, Instagram has brought new places and new people into her room.
