Thursday 21 March is UN World Down Syndrome Day. On that day, photographer Graham Miller is launching a book Six Percent: My Photographs, Their Stories. From 22 March till 22 May, there will also be an exhibition at Summerhall Gallery (former Royal Dick Veterinary building), 1 Summerhall, Edinburgh EH9 1PL.
“Graham photographs families as he asks them to reflect on their life experiences. The result is both heartwarming and heartbreaking. These exhibition photographs are complemented with quotes and audio recordings from the interviews with families. This frank exhibition pierces through the stigma of Down’s syndrome and shows that family life goes on despite a person’s different ability.” You can buy the book through Beyond Words. All our income from the sale of the book will go to Down’s Syndrome Scotland.
