A Photographer Proves That All Children Are ‘Works Of Art’

Soela Zani is a photographer from Albania who truly believes that all of us are, in our own way, works of art.

Somtimes in this world, we may look down upon or even be afraid of those we classify as “different” or “out of the norm.” But does that make any of us less unique or less wonderful?

Zani has created a project she calls “Every Human Is a Piece of Art.” And it involves using models with Down syndrome to recreate famous works of art.

I hope these photos touch you as much as they did me. Never forget, we are all special in our own way, and we are all deserving of love and respect.
