SJ's Story

Two photographers have joined forces to complete a photography project for Sarah-Jane “SJ” Staszak, an inspirational woman who, after suffering a herniated disc in her job as an outdoor education instructor, woke up from surgery to find she had become a quadriplegic.

Released to celebrate Mother’s Day 2017, the images show 43 year-old SJ with her 8 year-old son, Hamish, battling the elements in a series of extraordinary scenes.
