Conny Johnson, Charleston, SC Member Since March 2008 Artist Statement I am a beginning photographer and wanted to see if my work holds it's own.The funniest thing is now I look at everything in squares. I never did that until I received this camera 2 years ago as a gift from my husband to give me some way to express my artistic side. I am not capable to continue doing any of my artistic endeavors I did in my past.
I am disabled by Lyme disease so these photographs are taken to and from doctors' offices. Sometimes I get rides to places and then I always take my camera. I have had symptoms since childhood but nobody recognized what they meant. I have been diagnosed with many different illnesses, but some very common misdiagnosis for Lyme is Fibromyalgia, MS, chronic fatigue syndrome, and many more. I am adding a web address to a website for information on Lyme disease instead of a website for myself. If you have been diagnosed with any of the above PLEASE go and read this information. www.lymenet.org
The sales from every photograph will go into a medical fund because the treatment for late stage Lyme disease is expensive and long term.
