Description This self portrait depicts my internal struggle with anger in the wake of my head injuries. Finally, thru medication and therapy/rehab and my photography projects have I been able to understand and tame the beast. I want to thank my family, friends and medical team for standing by me when others quit on me! Thank you!
Jim Dukes, Cary, North Carolina Member Since December 2012 Artist Statement Hi and thank you for visiting my Portfolio. My background is in design/build engineering but I have always had an internal spark for photography. A year ago I started rehabilitation for a Traumatic Brain Injury and PTSD. I realized that as the technical part of my brain is seriously impaired, my creative side is blossoming! I am committed to exploring this form of expression as part of my ongoing rehab and fan the spark for art, into a burning fire. My hope is to inspire others with brain injuries, to find their voice...their expressive outlet thru music, painting, photography, etc., to enhance recovery. If you like my work and make a purchase, please send me a message so I can thank you personally.
