Up Close

A Mother's View

This wonderful book is a moving photographic record and memoir of a mother-daughter relationship in the light of an enduring disability from birth through adolescence. Daughter, Ophir, has Down Syndrome. Up Close is a remarkable work of meditative, unflinching, searingly honest and loving as a portrait of humanity at its most touching and challenging.
