Rosie Barnes is a documentary and fine art photographer with a particular interest with the natural world. She also makes work about disability/difference, community/family.

She recently was selected for the The Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait with her project No You’re Not – A Portrait of Autistic Women “I felt this group of women are the least likely to be believed to be autistic. A persistent untruth that autism is rare in women, has meant many women arrive at a diagnosis many years after their male counterparts and their ability to ‘mask’ to fit in throughout their lives, comes at the cost of their mental health. The irony is that their struggles are often greater because of their achievements, often in education and work, meaning they are even less likely to be believed and more likely to be misunderstood”.
