Almost a year since the introduction of a controversial prenatal screening test, a photo exhibition is underway in Tokyo to dispel misunderstandings about children with Down Syndrome.

Originating in Britain, the exhibition titled "Daun-sho: Kazoku no Manazashi" ("Down Syndrome: The Family View"), features 80 photos and short films that capture "happy" moments in the lives of people with the syndrome. The subjects come from a variety of ages and ethnicities.

The show originally started in 2005 with photographer Richard Bailey, whose daughter has Down Syndrome, as the chief organizer. It toured seven countries before Japan with the objective of helping to create a more "inclusive" society that embraces individuals regardless of disability.
