You’re Just Little

Hello Little Lady - standing at a sink in the toliets unable to see in the mirror because it's too high.

In October 2018, Spectrum Cultural Hub in Co. Durham agreed to host the photography exhibition, ‘You’re Just Little’.  The exhibition ran from the 4th – 14th October to coincide with 2018’s Dwarfism Awareness Month.

‘You’re Just Little’, revealed the challenges, obstacles and societal assumptions people with Dwarfism face on a daily basis.

Along with challenging the use of the gallery space, there was also a participatory element to include other viewpoints from across the spectrum of dwarf conditions.  The participant photographs had a powerful impact, personally and on the visitors, alike.

Touring and Speaking opportunities

If you are interested in hosting the exhibition at your venue or would like me to visit your organisation to talk about the exhibition and Dwarfism, please get in touch with steph@hellolittlelady.com.
