First and Foremost I Am

Sigga Ella

Inverness Museum & Art Gallery

08 Sep - 30 Sep

Sigga Ella was born in Akureyri, Iceland, and graduated from the School of Photography in Reykjavík. This series consists of 21 portraits of people who all have Down’s Syndrome. She shows that each of these individuals is a person like anyone else and should not be judged by one extra chromosome. She does not control the sitter but rather lets them show us who they are. Some are smiling, others giggling and hands and feet are placed freely showing that by no means are these people all the same, although they share the same syndrome.

Programmed as part of FLOW Photofest 2017.
