Emma Stephenson is a London based artist/illustrator working mainly on reportage projects and themes. Her latest project is about her perspective on the world from her wheelchair.

I wanted to use the images as an informative tool. Even though I am a wheelchair user I am not defined by the chair. My work is predominantly in pencil. I find the pencil marks achieved on the paper are most successful for creating tone and depth.
