Yesterday’s vintage photograph of my brother Mike* in bandages was rather dramatic. He was in the midst of one of his stereotypical gestures (elbowing himself in the chest) as I snapped the picture. But, as with most photographs, that one did not tell the whole story about Mike in his bandages.
I visited Mike in his group home for most of that day in 1992, and took more photographs.
These portraits together with the photo from yesterday’s blog give a better view of how Mike coped with his injury.
* My older brother Mike is autistic, low functioning and nonverbal.
