ECHOLILIA

The other evening at my friend’s apartment, I was flipping through one of her National Geographic issues and stumbled upon an article by Timothy Archibald. The article was about one of his personal projects about his autistic son. Archibald explained that he began to photograph his son around the house whenever he did something interesting. He named the collection of photos “Echolalia” after the condition commonly present in autistic children that cause them to repeat certain vocalizations made by someone else. I was so interested in this project because I am currently interning at McIver Education Center in downtown Greensboro, where many of my autistic students suffer from echolalia. The pictures below are my favorite from the project.
