Tania's Three Dreams

PRAFOTA 2020 Documentary Photography Short-list
What do teenagers dream about? Acceptance, love, friendship. Now, what can a teenager with Down syndrome dream about? It’s exactly the same things: acceptance, love and friendship! Here is the story of Tania Filaniec, a newbie model with Down syndrome, and her amazing mother Kaciaryna, who work toward making their dreams come true despite all stereotypes. The project presents a variety of family life scenes taking place during the week: from school studies and a fashion show to the girl’s movie date with her boyfriend from Russia. The project materials were published on November 11, 2019.
