Through eXtraordinary Eyes

What happens when you give a digital SLR to a 4-year-old boy with Fragile X Syndrome who has some difficulty communicating his point of view clearly via speech?

As his parents, we were shocked and amazed at his natural photographic talent when we first tried this a year ago. Even when the images turn out blurry, the composition is deliberate, the perspective is intriguing, and the subject matter gives clues as to what the artist values.

We hope that in sharing some of our son’s work, we might inspire in others a spark of creativity, a glimmer of hope, or the opening of a mind to the possibilities that may be found in unlikely places.
