Overview

Andreas Reeg, an upcoming photographer emphatically pictures four individual people with Down’s syndrome. Instead of focusing on their disability, he documents their personal ways of successfully dealing with life. In one case, it is no exaggeration to even speak of national fame that Schlappi, one of the four, has gained in Germany with his rock band. Having accompanied the protagonists over several weeks, Reeg’s intimate pictures evoke ideas of strength and tenderness, naturalness and dignity. A profound essay by Cora Halder explores society’s changing view of the syndrome from its discovery in 1866 by the physician J. L. Down until today.

Introduction by Siegfried M. Pueschel, former director of the Child Development Center in Providence, Rhode Island and leading expert in the field of Down’s syndrome.
