Embarrassed for a long time by the way people stared at his brother-in-law Michael, affected with Down syndrome, photographer Rick Ashley wanted to honor him by revealing the man behind the syndrome. Some beautiful portraits, contemplative but playful, unveiling with talent the deep and complex personality of Michael. A superb series.
