JUST AS I AM GALLERY

Just As I Am invites us to view the world through the lens of someone living with Down syndrome; a lens of pure love and compassion. This project aims to create awareness and a better understanding of Down syndrome through raw, authentic stories, intimate portraiture and short film series, to help people change the way we see those living with Down syndrome. 

These individuals are not deficient in any way; but are in fact "extra".  An extra chromosome gives people with Down syndrome an extraordinary ability to see the good, the joy, and the beauty in this world that the rest of us can't see.  This project challenges us to celebrate those with Down syndrome just as they are and to recognize their humanity and inherent worth.
