Website of the week: Shifting Perspectives (website and app)

Website of the week is a new series of posts highlighting one website each week, that we use and/or recommend to those interested in various aspects of the lives of people with Down syndrome.  If you have a website you would like to recommend, please contact us at and we'll take a look. 

Shifting Perspectives is a body of photographic work from a group of professional UK photographers (most of whom are parents of people with Down syndrome), produced over six years (so far), aimed at shifting the world's perspectives on people with Down syndrome.  The photographs of people with Down syndrome of all ages have appeared in calendars, a collection of posters, and annual exhibitions in London and throughout the UK.  All of the works are now collected online, with information about the photographers and a video overview of the processes and aims.

The latest Shifting Prespectives initiative is a free app for iPhone, iPod Touch and/or iPad, produced by Kelvin Jones of Bright Machine) making it all available wherever you want to see it. You can download the app via iTunes - it takes a little while because it is substantial, and is well worth taking the time.
