Mencap has created an outdoor exhibition to display some of winning photographs from its annual photo competition, Snap.

The pictures are all either taken by or featuring someone with a learning disability and aim to show life from the perspective of people with learning disabilities. As part of the This is Me exhibition, they are displayed on two-metre cubes at outdoor locations.






















Here we show a selection of the photos.

And become very hype!”
