Shifting Perspectives Over 8 years the Shifting Perspectives photography project has explored many different themes: birth, every day family life, relationships, culture and religion. The work is about more than just disability. It depicts people with Down’s syndrome as individuals, showing that they have dreams, aspirations, wants, needs, likes and dislikes, just like anyone else.
