LOOK! Forward

Photography Exhibit

Family Connection is hosting the LOOK! Forward photography exhibit in the Midlands for the first time this year. The opening event was held on Saturday, April 8 but the photos will remain on display at the Tapp’s Arts Center on Main Street in downtown Columbia for the entire month.

Family Connection developed the LOOK! project in 2013, in response to often heard comments from the families we serve. “I wish that the world would really see my child and not just their disability!”

This year, Look! Forward showcases the beauty and strength of children, teens and young adults who are living full lives despite their disability or special healthcare need. The photos will truly capture the personalities and strength of those featured, allowing others to easily connect and see them with their hearts.

Thanks to the generosity of 27 Midlands area photographers, the exhibit features 50 children, teens and adults who are living rich, fulfilling lives despite their disability of special healthcare need.
