Annual photo exhibit honors children and youth living with a disability
Family Connection of South Carolina (FCSC) has announced Groucho’s Deli as the presenting sponsor of LOOK. 2022.
This year’s LOOK. photography collection will be on exhibit at the Richland County Library Gallery downtown. A private reception for photographers, sponsors, and families served will be held July 23. The exhibit will be open to the public July 24 – September 16.
To create the exhibit, professional photographers from across the state volunteer their time to offer individual photo sessions with families who have a child or youth with a disability or chronic healthcare need. The inspiring photos capture active, candid moments of the participants doing the things they like to do best.

We appreciate what the LOOK. photography exhibit offers and are honored to support and celebrate the abilities of these amazing youth.”
