Escuela Creer Downs is a school for students with Down's Syndrome in Oaxaca, Mexico. I photographed at the school during March 2011 and befreinded 10 year old Luis Angel. After sizing me up on the first day I came to the school, he grabbed my hand and took me to play a 45 minute session of catch. Photographing Luis and his school for 3 days was one of the most beautiful experiences of my life and shaped the photographer I hope to become.

These images were awarded second place in the 2011 International Photography Association Lucie awards in the children category.
