Discovering Places from an Autistic Perspective

Autistic people can have quite a unique view of the world around them. Noticing the tiniest details that can be overlooked by others on the field or at home, but at the same time those senses are threatened at being overwhelmed at times with noise and visuals. One can also think of this as a different perspective on life itself. Something that may seem obvious to them can be oblivious to us and goes over our heads. A different way of thinking than we can be used to.

This is certainly the case of a local Chicago and Northwest Indiana resident Christopher Casson, an autistic nature and travel photographer as he travels across the Midwest region and beyond taking photos along the way. His photographs present what he sees as nature's work of art through his own vision and presents them for all to see what he sees. Each one tells its own story of his views of life and what he thinks about every day.

About Roots Organic Juice Cafe

Roots Organic Juice Cafe is an independent, family-operated organic juice bar and cafe located in downtown Valparaiso, Indiana. The cafe was founded by Diane Mattingly in 2012 with the help of family after feeling a great sense of inspiration from her experience with healthy eating that transformed her life forever. Together, they now share this life-altering experience of healthy whole eating with the community. After a successful launch and gaining quite a loyal following, Diane sold the business to her hand-picked successors, Carrie and Bill Durnell in 2016. The couple vowed to continue honoring Diane's established legacy and are positioning the business for the next chapter in its life for further growth and prosperity.
