Brothers and Sisters
Laura Dwight's interest in photographing children with special needs came from seeing poor, unflattering images of infants and toddlers with Down syndrome in her psychology textbooks. Her first board books for young children were for the Photoflap series published by Star Bright Books. Her first full length photographic book, We Can Do It!, portrays five children with special needs, and her book Brothers and Sisters features five sibling groups playing and solving problems in everyday situations. It allows children to satisfy their curiosity about disabilities while realizing that all children are essentially the same. VISIT Laura Dwight's website here.
