Photographer Juliet Chenery-Robson, whose daughter Emilia has ME, will be interviewed on BBC Radio Newcastle, about her latest exhibition, A Diagnosis of Exclusion, on BBC Radio Newcastle on Friday (May 14). The item will go out during the Drive Time show between 4.30 and 5.30pm.
Also appearing will be Professor Julia Newton, from the University of Newcastle, who leads a research team which is investigating various aspects of muscle physiology in people with ME – including a current MEA-funded study into whether there is unique relationship between ME and the production of lactic acid in skeletal tissue.
Juliet's exhibition of portrait photographs is on until 26 June at the Durham Light Infantry Museum and Durham Art Gallery at Aykley Heads, Durham DH1 5TU. It highlights the alienation, social exclusion and loss of identity faced by people with ME. Juliet's show has been hung alongside some of the work of Rosy Martin, which examines the overlaps between photography, memory, identity and unconscious processes.
Juliet has also installed a smaller version of the A Diagnosis of Exclusion exhibition in the foyer of Newcastle University's medical sciences facility during ME Awareness Week (9-15 May),
