On the eve of the National Down Syndrome Day (19 October) Laima Druknerytė’s documentary photography exhibition I Can Do More Than You Think was organized by Marta Bielskytė, a student of Creative Communication at Vilnius University, in collaboration with the Association of People with Down Syndrome and their Caregivers.
“When I went to photograph this project, I thought, what am I going to find there? Sadness, exclusion, apathy, anger? But I found a lot of personal, sensitive stories, laughter, and hugs. Maybe that’s why the photographs of the exhibition are as colorful as the lives I saw.” – Laima Druknerytė
