An Extra Chromosome

Hi everyone! Sorry for being so absent lately. School has definitely been stressful, but just wanted to share a photo project I did for my VIS Arts class.

Meet Knightly.

I wanted to have him as my subject not just because he's the cutest little thing, but also to bring awareness to his condition.

Knightly has Down's Syndrome, and I really wanted to show people photos that are far from the clear cut brochures and medical PSAs that I've come across about Down's Syndrome. I had previously planned to focus on the amazing therapies that he has been doing since he was a few weeks old, but as you can tell, the photos took a new direction of its own (mostly because it's really hard to take photos of a moving baby hahaha).

Thank you again for my cousin Drexelle and her husband David for letting me drop into their lives for a few days and letting me follow this little guy around.

I love how these turned out, and I hope you all like it too.
