I am a photographer living in New York City.   I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in 2008 and have decided to start a portrait project of people who have RA and other autoimmune diseases.  If you would like to participate, please e-mail me at jodimckeephotography@gmail.com.  Thanks!

    What a great project. If you ever come to Idaho let me know.
    I was diagnosed with RA when I was 34, I am now 37. My daughter was one year old at the time and I really struggled to take care of her as well as my three other children. (oldest was 6 at the time)
    Not “looking sick” was hard when it came to asking for help.
    I’ll keep checking your project.

    What a fabulous gift, Jodi – to see not only the struggles, but also the people who live with (and beyond) them. I have waited too long for someone to bring that part of living with illness to life~

    Thank you~ and I will visit often!

    Love your photos. I too have RA and have lost many activities due to pain and joint damage. I have become very interested in photography and suddenly realized it is something I can still do. Hope to take some classes this fall. Thanks for the inspiration and keep up the good work!
