Partnering with Richland Library on LOOK! Forward Photography Exhibit

COLUMBIA, SC The 2018 LOOK! Forward Photography Exhibit opens June 2 at the newly renovated Richland Library Main, 1431 Assembly St., in downtown Columbia.
The exhibit, which remains on display through August 17, showcases the beauty and strength of 48 children, teens and young adults who are living rich, full lives despite their disability or special healthcare need. Each individual’s story accompanies their photo, allowing others to actually see past the images and have a more realistic look into their lives.

The project is made possible thanks to the generosity of 35 South Carolina photographers – a value of more than $40,000 in services. Groucho’s Deli has supported the effort as the title sponsor, along with businesses and individuals throughout the state.

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

After the exhibit’s run at Richland Library’s downtown location, it will also travel to other areas of the state.
