The image is part of the Documentary project 'Me, Myself & MS'. Alice who is 78 years young, has suffered with Multiple sclerosis for the past 27 years. The project demonstrates what it is like to live with the condition on a day to day basis. Alice spends her days looking out of her window so she can still connect to the world in someway. The photography highlights that Alice is not just a prisoner in her own home but she is trapped within her own body.
