Alison Webber FRPS
Alison Webber FRPS took up photography in 2016. By chance, this whirlwind journey into the world of photography coincided with Alison receiving a diagnosis for Asperger syndrome. As a result, Alison soon realised the degree to which her photography and her autism were having a positive influence on each other. Alison is keen to use photography as a means of helping people with autism manage the challenges they face and was invited to become a member of the RPS Critical Friends group earlier this year.
