Riva Lehrer's portrait of Nommy Lamm


Not too long ago, I got my hands on a copy of Criptiques, an anthology of essays about disability edited by Caitlin Wood, the co-creater of the fantastic Where’s Lulu? videos. While the whole book was illuminating, I was most intrigued by Riva Lehrer’s contributions—both her essay and her art.

Credit doesn’t get enough credit for all it does to keep the world going. La reconnaissance n’est pas assez reconnu pour tout ce qu’elle contribue au fonctionnement du monde.
