Photographer Recreates Famous Paintings With Children With Down Syndrome

Albanian photographer Soela Zani recently teamed up with Down Syndrome Albania and director Emanuela Zaimi to create a stunning portrait series of local children inspired by a number of famous paintings.

Zani specializes in family photography, but she’s always been drawn to classic works, so this photo series was the perfect combination for her. Putting the project together was not easy, but Zani is ecstatic with the attention it’s received and the impact it’s had on the community.

“The message I want to share through this project is that every human is a piece of art, so we have to learn to see them in a beautiful way,” Zani told The Mighty in an email. “These children are beautiful, and they are able to do everything if we give them the chance.”
