Photographs of pages from a coloring book owned by a severely autistic man. A lack of understanding of communicative tools such as symbols and metaphors, or even plain representation, are typically linked to disorders within the autistic spectrum. The man who colored these pages received them from a caregiver. The monotonous task of coloring would keep him focussed, thus distracting him from self-mutilation. His inability to read the images becomes clear by his method of colouring. He used a single grey pencil, despite of having a wide choice of colours, and only filled in the areas within enclosed lines.
