Models with Down syndrome are often overlooked in the scope of creative industries. Ukranian photographer Marta Syrko seeks to change this with an absolutely gorgeous collection of meaningful images. She seeks to liberate individuals with the condition from the dominating myths within the context of her own country, as well.
The photography series is light in character. The images exude a certain elegance that is achieved through Syrko's impeccable art direction. The prismatic colors add a touch of playfulness, while the models with Down syndrome skillfully and beautifully surrender themselves to the camera lens.
Through this ethereal photo collection, Marta Syrko sought out to embrace the narratives of "individualism, dynamic, and curiosity." Moreover, she strived to be as inclusive as possible with her work and as a result, the subjects differ in "age, temper, and view."
