Every story of traumatic brain injury may include some similar themes, such as cognitive issues, long recoveries, and a lot of quiet resting. But, every story is also unique.
Trevor Gavin shows this through vivid pictures that document every step of his journey from traumatic brain injury to recovery. In March 2016, Gavin experienced a severe traumatic brain injury while skateboarding without a helmet in San Francisco.
The photos go from moments after the injury – when emergency medical responders took a quick picture from Gavin’s phone to convince him to go to the hospital – all the way to now. The photographer and filmmaker has largely recovered, with a newborn baby daughter and a new lease on life.
