Rikke Mathiasen’s story “Spine” in Washington Post

During a second term assignment in the spring 2020, Rikke Mathiasen made the personal project “Spine” about how the disease scoliosis impacts her life. A picture editor at Washington Post saw the project on DMJX Photojournalism’s Instagram and now Rikke’s story has been published on the newspaper’s Insight blog.

“The professionals told me that as long as I stayed physically active, I wouldn’t notice my back anymore. I am still waiting for the day that happens”.
