The photos of the project are the emotional stories about autistic children – unusual, “another” children whose behavior and reactions may seem strange for many people.
They are hypersensitive. The creaking sound of the door lock or a simple need to answer “yes” may terrify them. An autistic child feels discomfort (no matter physical or emotional) ten times more painfully than we do. Many of them are talented, but it’s not easy to recognize their unique abilities.
The gallery of the genre portraits about the life of autistic children, created in Moscow, Severodvinsk, Kiev, Saint-Petersburg and Novodvinsk boarding house tells the viewer about the tender age of today’s “people of rain”. All photos are monochrome. Such decision emphasizes the “special edge” passing between the world of autistic child and the society which is not ready to accept it. The psychological portraits of participants of the project narrated to people about people, speaking with us – “normal” people, in the language of tolerance and humanity.
The organizers express their gratitude to friends and partners of the project – companies “Almea” and “Geropharm” for their support and participation.
The project has the educational and socio-humanitarian orientation and promotes the information about autism in society.
