Review: Expressions of Addiction is an exhibition of original photographic portraits that depict people in various stages and expressions of addiction. Each portrait includes a brief biosketch of the subject and all are available to view on the website. Developed by Dr Howard Schaffer as an alternative health promotion and community awareness campaign, the visual arts opportunity was designed to give the general public an insight in to the day-to-day realities of living with an addiction or other type of dependency. The exhibition itself was not brought to Australia, however the bios of the people who use alcohol or other drugs remain very poignant.
