CAPTION: Artur has Downs Syndrome. He lives at home with his sister, mother and dog Tony ("like Tony Blair!"). Artur is in the 5th Grade at school. He knows the alphabet and knows how to count, and more than anything he loves to perform. His mother Vera's biggest concern is the lack of integration in education. Artur attends what is still called a 'correctional school'; Vera says she can’t see any changes in him over time. LOCATION: St Petersburg, Russia. INDIVIDUAL(S) PHOTOGRAPHED: Artur Chistovskiy.
