Motherhood: Jane & Tom: Portfolio

I had the privilege of residing with Jane and Tom for three years before embarking on this documentary project. Witnessing their beautiful relationship firsthand was a profound experience. In this film, Jane candidly shares the obstacles she's encountered while striving to secure a stable future for Tom. They graciously permitted me to capture a day in their lives, aiming to shed light on the significance of their journey and inspire reform within the UK's approach to adult disability care.
