Library Thursdays: I'm Down with you

New in this week is a collection of gorgeous photographs, I'm Down with You: An inspired journey by Jagatjoti S. Khalsa with Darren Setter (published by The Other Person is You, 2010). Over 100 black and white portraits of individuals with Down syndrome and some family members and friends. The individuals range from babies to adults and they all convey a wonderful spirit as well as their individual personalities.

Also included are essays by the founder of the US NDSS, Betty Goodwin; actors Sharon Stone and John McGinley; and founder of Best Buddies, Anthony Shriver. The photographer and creator of the book also writes some beautiful thoughts as do family members and friends who wrote the captions for the photos.

This would be a lovely book for a new parent to peruse as well as anyone who needs a bit of a lift. It would be very difficult to look at this book and not feel uplifted.
