Fotogrāfijas, kas radītas Igaunijas – Latvijas – Krievijas pārrobežu sadarbības programmas “Eiropas kaimiņattiecību un partnerības instrumenta ietvaros 2007.-2013. gadam”  PHOTOYOUTH projekta “Fotogrāfija jauniešiem. Fotogrāfijas mākslas pieejamība jauniešiem ar speciālajām vajadzībām” ietvaros, pārsteidz ar dziļu emocionalitāti un īpašu pasaules uztveri.

“Caur objektīva skata punktu lietas fokusējas un izskatās citādāk, nekā mēs ikdienā tās esam raduši vērot. Tu tver vienu punktu un fiksē to un vēro, kas sanāca. Radošais process rada mūsos pozitīvas domas un uzlabo garastāvokli, ceļ mūsu pašapziņu,”- atklāšanas pasākumā savas atsauksmes par dalību projektā pauda projekta dalībnieki no Rīgas 3. speciālās skolas.
