Virginia Lowes

Oral Historian, Writer and Photographer

I am an oral historian, writer and a photographer. 

My social enterprise My Own Words enables people who are losing their powers of communication to tell their own story. My Own Words especially focuses on those with early onset progressive illnesses such as Parkinson's, MND, Alzheimer's, Huntington's.

These stories can be built up with a mix of voice recordings, photographs, film and memory box-type creation. 

The service is offered to individuals and also as bigger projects in the community or within relevant groups. 

I write short stories, poems and take photographs. Check out the www.dayglowphotos.com  link to see examples of photography.
