This young guy has severe learning difficulties together with very poor hearing, vision and speech so all of the usual methods of asking the model to interact with the camera have to be left behind. He knew that there was a stranger present so I sat & helped him play on the piano (part of his music therapy) for about an hour. This way we were able to develop a gentle rapport, he then felt more comfortable with my presence and I was able to start shooting. This is another image that I find immensely satisfying.
