About

CELEBRATING DIFFERENCE 




Our goal is to fund the publishing of a large scale, hardcover, coffee table book titled, Celebrating Difference - a rare disease journey, consisting a series of images by photographer Ceridwen Hughes and accompanying stories.  The emphasis is on the child and each image aims to bring out their personality and positivity rather than simply focusing on their condition. 

With this book we aim to make people more aware about what it means to be affected by a rare disease whilst giving them a stronger voice in their community. Using powerful portraits to capture the person behind the condition and sharing as many stories as possible, we can make people think and look beyond their first impression.  The joy and happiness of each child shines through whilst their families discuss their own personal rare disease experience.

"This is a beautiful exhibition which stops you in your tracks and gives a powerful message. It deserves to be seen by as many people as possible." Sue Appleton

As an organisation, Same but Different recognises the importance of providing support for all families affected by rare disease, which is why we will donate funds to ensure there is support available for anyone affected, no matter how rare it is, if we reach our funding target. 

We are pleased to offer you the opportunity to help us by ordering copies of our book, with the option of having your name published in the book as a contributor.

With Kickstarter contributions, Same but Different can afford to print more copies and expand its distribution network.

The images are already photographed, edited and only need to be organised and published. This hardcover photo book will be approximately 108 pages and will measure 11.69 x 8.27 inches, consisting of colour images and their accompanying stories. The book will be printed on heavy stock, high quality, photo paper. I have already had quotes from a reputable printer. We have worked hard to keep costs to a minimum and are now ready to commence with this project. Please know that if a project does not meet its goal, no one's credit card is charged. The cards are only charged when the project meets its goal and the pledging period ends.

The photos in the Kickstarter video are just a sampling of what will be in the book. Many unpublished images will appear in Celebrating Difference and I have been saving, not sharing on social media, photos specifically designated for this book.

Please support the work we do by pledging. The Kickstarter time line is only 60 days. We estimate that the book will be printed and ready to distribute early September to Kickstarter participants.

About

Ceridwen's images have appeared in publications throughout the world. At last count, the images from her Rare Project series appeared in over 21 different countries from the BBC and ITV to Huffington Post. She is passionate about capturing that moment in time that draws the observer in to want to know more. If it ignites interest or simply makes someone pause then she is happy. "Our lives are so busy that we often do not take enough time to really look at the World around us. To truly see the interactions that happen between people, whether as part of a live performance or in our day to day lives - we need to take time to observe. My passion for photography began through curiosity and has resulted in a growing awareness of the world around me. I hope that my images portray some of that interest and passion" said Ceridwen. In addition to her business, she is also the founder of Same but Different, a community organisation set up to raise awareness of disability using the arts. Published in The Sunday Times, The Sun, Daily Mail, Frankfurter Allgemeine, Huffington Post (USA,UK, Brazil, Australia), Daily Post, Chester Chronicle, Evening Leader, Birmingham Mail, Australia Women’s Weekly, Enfemenino, Vemale, The Post Internazionale, Homegrown, Ghana Nation, BBCMundo, La Opinion, Noizz, Rede TV, Upsocl, Bebes Y Mas, The Stir, The Mighty, Telegram, NetMoms, Special Needs Jungle, Wales Online, Huff Post Parents, A PlusBroadcast on BBC The One Show, BBC Wales News, ITV WalesNews, Radio Wales, BBC Children in Need, 9 News.

Risks and challenges

The risk is relatively low. If we don't reach the funding goal, then your credit card is not charged. If we reach the funding goal, then it is just a matter of printing the book and distributing it. I have more than one bid for the cost of publication, and the funding goal will meet or exceed more than one of the printing and distribution quotes.
