‘My name is Emma Pille. I am 23 years old and I have autism. In 2017 I started studying photography at the Fotovakschool, unfortunately, I had to stop here. After I had to quit because there was too much confusion for me and I got depressed, I wanted to start a project about autism’.
I did not want to just approach it negatively. That is why most of my posters have a comical undertone. All photos were taken by me in nature or in the city. Of course, everyone sees autism in a different way, which is why I keep emphasizing that it is my view of it. But my posters make it clear to people what it can be like to have autism in this society. Consider, for example, incomprehension and seeing everything very black and white and taking it literally. I call the poster project AUTSIDE – this includes the words autism and outside.
