Earlier this summer, I had a quick assignment for the Chronicle of Higher Education to go up to Gordon College and photograph the creators of the Accessible Icon Project, a more active redesign of the International Symbol of Access (also known as the handicap symbol). The new icon, designed by Brian Glenney, has been adopted by New York City and a growing number of municipalities and organizations around the US. It features a more active view of the person in a wheelchair, leaning forward and ready to go.
