"Dyslexia: the Art of Struggle" is a multimedia photojournalism project told through the experiences of nine dyslexic individuals. Those who have dyslexia struggle with pronouncing (word recall), encoding (writing) and decoding (reading) language. This is poignantly felt in a society organized by written words; however, dyslexics often show resilience, creativity and imagination when facing this challenge. My research focuses on the cognitive processing particular to dyslexia, as well as the impact of psychological effects and social perceptions. In working with these individuals a common narrative thread emerged: struggle shows us who we are and is often the prologue to great failure or success. This project was designed for a story-driven website. www.theartofstruggle.com.
