The Leeds Institute of Health Sciences (LIHS) will be hosting a new exhibition from 6 to 19 July of photographs from 'Shifting Perspectives', celebrating the diversity of people with Down's syndrome.
Now in its eighth year, the 'Shifting Perspectives' team continues to break down pre-conceived ideas about people with Downs syndrome, highlighting the individuality of every person with Downs syndrome.
The work explores the photographic representation of people with Downs syndrome, challenging attitudes and prejudices and examining alternative representations of both adults and children. Shifting Perspectives questions general views of what living with Downs syndrome means to individuals, families and friends.
The exhibition will be displaying the work of Richard Bailey, Fiona Bailey and Eva Snoijink.
It is being staged:
On: 6 to 19 July 2012
At: Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm
In: The foyer of the Charles Thackrah BuildingPosted in: University news
