Shifting Perspectives Book
EXPLORING THE PHOTOGRAPHIC REPRESENTATION OF PEOPLE WITH DOWN’S SYNDROME
The images in this book draw upon many different themes, from intimate family life to asking if Down’s syndrome occurs within every race or culture, from an actress recreating Vermeer paintings to portraits of teenage girls. From photographs taken by people with Down’s syndrome to people with Down’s syndrome in the workplace. From lovers and married couples to newborn babies.
Society has changed from twenty years ago; people with disabilities are now much more part of the mainstream, but there is still a long way to go. People all over the world are now seeing our images and my hope is that the public will be able to see that people with Down’s syndrome have dreams, aspirations, wants, needs, likes and dislikes, just like anyone else and through these images they will see an individual, rather than just a person with Down’s syndrome.
