"I am proud of the disability I have. Yes, I'm disabled, but I'm not defective. Instead, I'm someone different." Though he was born without legs or hands, this photographer discovered his passion for image-making and has become a talented creative.
Coming to you from Great Big Story, this video tells the inspirational story of Achmad Zulkarnain, an Indonesian photographer who was born without hands or legs. Residing in Banyuwangi, he started by taking ID card pictures for other locals, when he discovered his passion for photography. He now travels in a custom go-kart for faraway shoots, a vehicle he designed entirely by himself. His work includes portraits, weddings, and documentary images.
Zulkarnain has been published in his home country for some time and has recently begun to receive international recognition, including publication in Turkey. He's definitely a very inspirational person, and I recommend taking a few minutes to watch his story in the video above.
