A short documentary I've put together about the artist Simon Haw. I felt a really strong connection with Simon when I met him and although I didn't fully understand everything he was telling me on the day of filming, after going through the footage, I began to interpret and infer things about his backstory and inner emotional life. I hope you find something interesting in here too.
Simon was born in York in 1965. In his youth he was an excellent tennis player. At eighteen, shortly after beginning an art course, Simon was involved in a road traffic accident that resulted in a very serious head injury and sight loss. His eye condition is Myopia, which makes it easier for him to see objects that are near to him than objects in the distance. Simon is registered as sight impaired.
Filmed at Henshaws Arts and Crafts Centre, Knaresborough, Yorkshire, UK.
