Up and coming Deaf Citizens photographer Levent Marasli have embarked on a photography project to share the achievements and fascinating stories of the Deaf community and the barriers they face. With range of deaf participants from the entertainment, political and outreach sectors, Deaf Citizens shows the depth of passion, talent and endeavour within the Deaf community.
Society should be a basic human right for all deaf citizens. Unfortunately, barriers still exist - mental, physical and particularly institutional barriers. Deaf Citizens want to show that being Deaf isn't a disadvantage.
Levent, founder of Deaf Citizens aims to change the narrative around Deaf entrepreneurs, freelancers, business owners and employees. By choosing to take portraits and sharing the biographies of Deaf people who are highly successful in their fields alongside those who are still struggling to overcome barriers into employment. It's time to disrupt the barriers and bring more awareness.
