Chronic illness is debilitating and life changing. Alongside changing your body, it can affect your life in many other ways, including your relationships, your ability to work, your social life, and so much more.

Tackling both the seen and unseen impacts of chronic illness, The Chronic Diaries is a photographic self-portrait series which takes the viewer through the artist’s journey with chronic illness over the last 17 years.

Through works examining chronic pain, depression, anxiety, isolation and body image, Tyler aims to impact viewers in a way that will lead to more understanding of chronic illness in the community and to inspire sufferers to find ways to do what they love and live their best lives despite their limitations.
