PHOTOGRAPHER FORREST SARGENT OPENS FIRST SEATTLE GALLERY SHOW

FIRST PHOTOGRAPHIC SHOW BY AN AUTISTIC ARTIST IN SEATTLE

OPENING MAY 5

Forrest Sargent, a talented photographer who is also a severely autistic
young adult opens his first exhibit in Seattle, WA as part of a larger show
at the newly opened ART WITH A HEART GALLERY in Pioneer Square.

Forrest, who was featured in segments on KOMO TV 4 and KING 5 TV,
consistently delights critics and fans alike with his unique view of the
world as expressed through the lens of his camera. In his own words
(‘spoken’ through a letter board):

“my name is Forrest Sargent. I have autism. I use a letter board to
communicate. I am 20 years old. I am a photographer. I love taking photos
because I can make something beautiful, I am an artist. Taking pictures, I
need to find the hidden light in everything. I want people to get pleasure
and reach my mind from my photos.”
