Looking for AliceMy daughter Alice, born with Downs Syndrome is no different to any other human being. She feels what you and I feel. However our society does not acknowledge this, and her very existence is given little or no value. Alice has entered a world where routine genetic screening is entirely weighted towards birth prevention. Alice was feeling my rejection of her, so the responsibility lay with me to shine a light on my own prejudices. This series is a witness to the process that I went through in coming to terms with my fears. I wonder how it might be for Alice to be valued without distinction, without exception and without second glance. This project is for her, Alice.
