ENGLEWOOD – A unique photo exhibit will give people the chance to meet 12 every inspiring people who have something in common.
They live with spinal cord or brain injury.
And they have all decided to not let their disability define their possibilities.
You can meet them, through portraits by Pulitzer Prize winning photographer Barry Gutierrez.
They have decided to take on life in a way that many able bodied people may never consider.
One of the photo subjects is Stewart Tucker Lundy.
Stewart was only 14 when he was injured in a diving accident in New Orleans.
He’s never let living with quadriplegia define his life.
Stewart says all his best memories have been in a wheel chair, so why dwell on how life could be different?
He’s a communications consultant and works to change people’s attitudes towards people living with disabilities by serving on the Denver Mayor’s Commission for People with Disabilities.
You will also meet others through the photographs, who are just as inspiring.
A ski instructor, a Paralympian, a former Ms. Wheelchair Colorado and a talented singer-song writer, among others.
All beautifully photographed with amazing stories to tell.
The “Redefining Possible” Portrait Series runs from Aug. 29 through Dec. 31.
It’s on display at the Wildlife Experience at CU South Denver.
It’s presented by Craig Rehabilitation Hospital, which helped the portrait subjects learn to redefine possible.
