There are thought to be around 6000 genetic conditions, these are spread throughout the population but most of the time they remain hidden in our genes undetected. This project explores the lives and relationships of siblings in which one or more has such a genetic condition.
We learn how the siblings’ lives are different and yet deeply intertwined. The images and stories reveal how the families are very proud of who they are and their worth to wider society. They have a power to encourage empathy and promote humanity, as Jenna Graham says about her sister, “If more people spent time with someone like Lauren, the world would be a better place”.Return
