Capturing a Brother's Brave Struggle With Cerebral Palsy in Photographs


Long Island-based photographer Christian Wilbur’s 30-year-old brother, Daniel, was born with cerebral palsy, and while he has managed to lead a fairly normal life, in 2012 the Wilbur family made the agonizing decision to move Daniel into a nearby nursing home. Soon after, Wilbur, 22, documented his family’s transition in a haunting photo series called 'With or Without You,' recently featured on the photography website Feature Shoot.“I wanted to depict Danny’s departure from our home and what life is like without him,” Wilbur tells Yahoo Shine. Here are 12 revealing shots. —By Elise Sole
