Mapping 1 : An art science Collaboration.
Talk & Question TIME.

By mapping different scientific disciplines, Yas Crawford Photographer, has explored the current UK research on Myalgic encephalomyelitis and chronic illness. M.E is a hidden condition that affects approximately 10 million people around the world, often undiagnosed with no diagnostic tests, no treatment and no cure.

Through exploration of perspective, complexities, time and place she creates imagery that explains, reveals and connects us consciously to the ambiguous and the unknown. In order to deliver a Final Major Project for her Masters Degree in Photography from Falmouth University she has undertaken photographic shoots in collaboration with the International Invest in ME research, M.E Association, The Clinical Images & Sciences Centre in Brighton, The Quadram Institute of BioSciences in Norwich and The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Her work has been exhibited in London, Rome, LenScratch Magazine online exhibition from LA and the Landings Falmouth Post-Graduate Exhibition. She will also be launching her book Mapping 1: An art science collaboration. We hope you can join her for a talk and question time with Kirsteen Titchener Photographer.
