Beautiful and inspiring portraits create a new image and identity for disability, showing grace, beauty, strength, and resolve. In portraiture, as in most human interactions, the head-indeed the eyes-are the first thing noticed. But confronted by a person in a wheelchair, the viewer's focus shifts to the chair. This work challenges any assumption of difference, illuminating Christopher Reeve's protest after his accident - "I am still me!" - and emphasizing that able-bodied or disabled, humanity is innate to us all. The book accompanies a traveling exhibition of the paintings, drawings, and sculptures. A New York-based fine artist specializing in portraiture and landscape, Hilary Cooper has been featured in numerous exhibitions and collections, as well as editorials in The New Yorker and Art News. Among her commissioned works are portraits for Erica Jong, Ed Koch, Kimberly Rockefeller, and Patricia Hearst Shaw.
