    Thank you Miguel Coquis!

    Excellent images made with love

    My very first LF was 5X7 Pinhole in a college class, I was in my 50's, a selfie I have posted more than once

    The college also taught 'Art Therapy' Leaders, Special Needs as we call it in USA

    All the Art Students 'informed' each other as it was a small college, now destroyed

    We had Ballet, Theater, Music, Photo and the usual

    I did a few very odd live silent performances

    Not dance or movement or sound

    Perhaps, but 90% of the time, the doctor is going to diagnose you with their animosity included...

    Like with mine... "oh your exagerating, and those over teh shelf blood pressure cuffs are soo inaccurate. you cant possibly be that high." She gives me a bp check with her machine, and its as bad as i say, 10 minutes later and ekg..

    yet the piece of crap refuses to give me blood pressure pills anymore because teh one she likes to prescribe i have bad reactions too

    I have friends with a highly autistic teenager. He's constantly got a sketchpad and basic set of colored pens, and as random as it all might at first seem, his sense of balance and of color is extraordinary. I've been trying to talk them into getting him some kind of instant print camera, ala Polaroid - I think Fuji still offers those - and letting him experiment with that. Something like a mere digital image would mean nothing him. He's a hands-on producer of art. He can read well, but not communicate well. He's warm and expresses friendship by giving all kinds of people his sketches. I think he has really possibilities.

    I prefer Instax Wide shot with NIKON cheapest mirrorless and their very compact 50 to 250 lens\

    Pair them with the Wide portable small rechargeable printer

    Very adjustable color and cropping

    At the end of the cycle we mount an exhibition in a public gallery in Paris.
    Hope this is bringing enjoyable information for this post from Tin Can.
    I learnt much during this workshops and will remain very grateful for what it was given to me.

    Thanks for the Instax idea. But in this case, I think anything phone or digital would be either ignored or counterproductive. He can't relate to that kind of device at all. But something completely manual would be no problem : sees something interesting through a viewfinder, pushes a button, and is taught how to put in and pull out the print sleeve or whatever. He is attending classes pairing art projects to special autistic needs. But it's kinda like craft projects in rest homes, and doesn't foster the kind of exceptional talent both myself and others with serious color backgrounds sense he has.
