One Million Voices

Updated:

Quinn Kirkpatrick uses his talent to bring a message of awareness and acceptance. With the click of his camera, Quinn captures the innocence and beauty of children with Down Syndrome.

Quinn is a professional photographer in Davenport, and he photographed several children and young adults. The photos are part of an exhibit traveling the country designed to help change perceptions the public might have of people with Down Syndrome.

Quinn says the pictures make you stop and realize that these children are just as vibrant and wonderful as other kids. Each photo has a story along with it. Quinn's wife, Anne, interviewed several families and posted the stories for the exhibit.

 The photos are a mixture of children laughing, smiling, and sometimes even more serious looks.  Parents of children featured in the exhibit say it champions the cause for kids who have Down Syndrome, through the use of pictures.

The exhibit is intended to reach a million people, and change perceptions. There are nineteen photos in the exhibit. There are more than four hundred thousand people living with Down Syndrome in the United States.
