Colin Potsig has produced a compelling collection of portraits of other autistic people, where the directness and intensity of the gaze is the central theme. This is an ambitious new series of portraits of autistic people who have carved out successful professional careers. Some, working in the creative industries, are well known actors, musicians and TV presenters.
His subjects and collaborators are interesting, impressive and varied, including the opera singer Sophia Grech, comedian Paul Wady, actor Jules Robertson, professional rugby player and ‘Undateables’ star Tom Morgan, and Temple Grandin, Professor of Animal Science at Colorado State University,
