“Most of my work was photographed in Wisconsin, where I’ve lived all my life. When I was five years old, a benign tumor was discovered in my lumbar spine, which gradually caused my spine to curve over time.

In 2007, I experienced severe complications from the surgery that straightened and fused my spine in place.

Eleven years later, I underwent more reconstructive spinal surgeries that were unsuccessful and caused additional impairments.

Photography allows me to express how I feel, and transform the pain and isolation of my deformed and disabled body into beauty and strength. I try to mirror what I feel inside when I capture the subtle changes in light, mood, and landscapes around me.

I take pictures to remember how I feel, and I hope they make you feel something personal for yourself.” – Margaret Durow, July 2020
