The light fantastic

Have your say

A POWERFUL new photographic exhibition showcasing the inspiring work of teenagers with autism will go on display.

Strong Voices opens at the Royal Armouries Museum at Fort Nelson on Sunday.

The fort’s education team has been working with Portsmouth Autism Support Network, a group of parents whose children have an autistic spectrum disorder.

Sixteen teenagers teamed up with Butterfly FX, a company of artists, to produce images through an experimental art form known as light graffiti.

Lisa Calder, from Butterfly FX, said: ‘Light painting uses long exposure photography and the movement of handheld lights. It is lots of fun and allows people to create amazing images.’
