Benjamin Von Wonga is a Canadian artist, photographer and activist. He is getting involved in more and more projects , like the one devoted to a disadvantaged mother.
Together with another artist, Karen Alsop, Benjamin von Wong took part in ‘Heart Project’ illustrating the story of Sarah Jane Staszak
The woman in question got paralyzed during a seemingly routine surgery which normally carries little or no risk at all
Before the surgery she was a very active person – she would go climbing, sailing and being on the go for most of the time
When she was operated on, her son was only three years old
The project team let the woman make her dream come true; in the Blue Mountains (Australia) they helped her to climb together with her son
The fantastic photos below are the footage of the trip
Von Wang refused to accept any payment for the project
Sarah Jane received all the photos as a gift from the artist on Mother’s Day
