About the artist

"I am calling this show 'Delight'. I think flowers show the real beauty of life. I take photos of flowers to show yet again another view of the real Truth behind the World. I mean, the Light in everything." - Forrest

"Hello, 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 like to take pictures of nature. I sell my photos. I love taking photos because I can make something beautiful, I am an artist. I think photography is the loveliest art because it shows the truth. It shows the secret beauty in things. Taking pictures, I need to find the hidden light in everything. I want people to get pleasure and reach my mind from my photos."




I was born in Tokyo, Japan.

I lived there for three years.

I became autistic when we moved back to Seattle.

It was terrible and I couldn’t talk or do things.

I was not happy. I lived at home and acted crazy.

Now I live at Fircrest.

I go home and see mom and dad lots.

Now I can talk with a letter board and I feel much better.

I have friends and I don’t scare people anymore.

I will get better and have a relaxing life.

I know a lot and I want to share it.




I have a facebook page too:
