Photographer Maddy Helps Give School An Eye Into Autism

A Consett Photographer is working with a local school to encourage autism acceptance within the community.


Maddy Ashworth and Villa Real School have collaborated on ‘An Eye Into Autism’ – a two-part project using conceptual visual art, photography and text in an exhibition to encourage acceptance of autism, through exploring the internal worlds of children and young people.


Maddy, who owns and runs M Photography NCL, saw an opportunity to develop this project through her eye-opening photography and design work in partnership with the school; which itself is committed to improving acceptance of all people with autism within the local community.

The exhibition was launched on Tuesday at Villa Real School, to coincide with Autism Awareness Week (1st-7th April).


Drawing on her experience as a professional Photographer and Graphic Designer, Maddy has impacted the children who have Autism and allowed them to express their uniqueness and personalities through the use of visual media.


The business, which predominantly offers photography services, captures its customers’ precious moments in the comfort of their homes.

Maddy, who has worked on a number of creative projects for local businesses including Shotley Bridge Nursery School, Essential Interiors and QLodges at Slaley Hall, said: “Being part of this project has allowed me to utilise the skills I have to improve not only my understanding of Autism, but to help the school, it’s pupils and members of the community who have Autism."


"I am looking to expand upon my business relationships with other local schools and businesses in the area who could benefit from my commercial services.’’


Jill Bowe, Headteacher of Villa Real School, said: “This project is part of our ongoing commitment to raising understanding and acceptance of all people with Autism.”


“We are also working in partnership with Durham police to develop the ‘Jack’ protocol to support officers who have autism and the experience of people with autism have when liaising with the police.’’
