Photo Journal: Display of strength


A black and white photomontage of people with Down syndrome together with their mothers is seen here inside Tokyo Metro's Omotesando Station in the capital's Minato Ward on May 8, 2017. The display, which consists of 21 sets of mothers with their children, has been exhibited as part of the buildup to Mother's Day on May 14. One of the key messages behind the exhibition is that of "motherly strength." The pictures were taken by 56-year-old photographer Naotaka Miyamoto, and the montage has been organized by the nonprofit organization Acceptions. The photos will continue to be on display until May 14. (Mainichi)
