Belinda Xia — Come & Meet My Friend
Posted on November 3, 2012
Belinda Xia introduces us to her friends.
Often those who are intellectually disabled don’t get the opportunity to properly introduce themselves. I’d like to introduce everybody to my friends: Jane, Penny & George.
These portraits are a way of representing them and their quirks without their disability being at the forefront. Using a more metaphorical portrayal, we get to look beyond the physical to the innerness of their person. The booklets are an extension of the portraits — inside is a collection of some of the other quirks that make up their personalities.
