Living with multiple sclerosis: «It is not necessary to remain invisible»
When Patricia Lay-Dorsey discovered that she had multiple sclerosis, she did not give up: she took a camera and began to record how her body and her life were changing and how these changes made her feel.
The artist, who works in Detroit, United States, was diagnosed with progressive multiple sclerosis in 1988, when she was 45 years old.
Back then I was running marathons and cycling.
Today, Lay-Dorsey acknowledges that her self-portraits, which she has been doing for about six years, help her stabilize positively.
