Childhood’s End Gallery, 222 4th. Avenue West in Olympia, is featuring Forrest Sargent’s photography, “Northwest Perspectives,” through February 10. Sargent is a 19-year old nature photographer from Seattle who is autistic and uses his photography and a letter board to communicate. A reception for the artist will take take place January 22 from 2-4pm.

He is the featured artist at the Childhood End Gallery in Olympia. Up until a few years ago Forrest was unable to talk or communicate and had a very frustrating and difficult time because of autism. Now he resides at Fircrest, an RHC and gets the support he needs from professional staff as well as his family.
He is now able to communicate many ways. One of those ways is through Photography.

Forrest's story has received a lot of great coverage lately, including Seattle Art Blog (above), KOMO TV and TONITE will be featured on KING  5 News.

Here are some of Forrest's wonderful images:

Forrest is showing a definite talent and ability to communicate with his photography. And his parents are naturally very proud of the progress he's made.
