Prix de la Photographie Paris 2016 (#px3).

Honourable Mention.

· PX3,Awards,Downs Syndrome

"Being Emily". Very happy to have received an Honourable Mention in the Portrait category of #px3, Prix de la Photographie Paris 2016.

 On the 22nd of January 2005 the non-identical twins Lorca Sebastian and Emily Carmen were born. Emily was diagnosed with Down's Syndrome the following day. As a photographer and father I started documenting Emily's life from the early times of uncertainties to the spell-bounding progress she has made and the raw charm Emily selflessly gives anyone she encounters.

 

People with Down’s Syndrome are now much more part of society but there is a long way to go. The viewer can see these images where Emily is portrayed candidly as a young girl full of dreams, aspirations, wants, needs, likes and dislike...just like anyone else.

 

Down's syndrome or Trisomy 21, is a genetic disorder caused by the presence of all or part of a third copy of chromosome 21.
