Despite complete blindness in one eye and being legally blind in the other, multiple sclerosis, and lung cancer, street photographer Flo Fox continues to shoot the streets of New York City. No longer able to hold a camera as she has been disabled from the neck down since 1999 and diagnosed with MS since the age of 30, she instructs her aides to take photos for her. "I first bought a camera at age 26 and I carried it with me every day." Flo's subjects were that of the "ironic reality" style found on the gritty streets of New York as well as many art installations with self-proclaimed "naughty photos." Flo was also inspired by the World Trade Center, and took a series of photographs there, hanging off of the edge of one of the towers. Flo's works have appeared in Life Magazine, NY Magazine and among many others. Flo has also made public art pieces surround wheelchair ramps on the street corners of New York and has taught photography classes to those who are blind and/or with other disabilities. Flo has a feisty spirit, sharp wit, and dirty sense of humor. She says it's not important to stay hung up on what you can't do "most important is to continue in a different style."
