Photo by @amivitale on assignment for @opensocietyfoundations. Living with a disability does not mean you must live without joy and meaning and happiness. I spent a transformative week this summer with people like Giorgi at the nongovernmental organization Hand in Hand in Tbilisi, Georgia, documenting the stories of people with psychosocial and intellectual disabilities leading meaningful lives because they were living in homes and not in large institutions. The goal of Hand in Hand is to create loving, healthy environments and get people out of large institutions and into homes so they can lead normal lives.
I am sharing work this week on the de-institutionalization of care for people with psychosocial and intellectual disabilities. Please follow along with @opensocietyfoundations.
Please join me at @photoplusexpo at the Javits Center in NYC this week! I’ll be giving a workshop on Friday, October 21 from 2-4 pm and will be speaking every day at the @nikonusa booth about the new #KeyMission 360 action cameras. Along with tremendously talented fellow NIKON ambassadors @coreyrichproductions @joemcnallyphoto @daveblackphoto @tamaralackey @deannefitzmaurice @jerryghionis #photoplusexpo
