Columbia, S.C. – Family Connection of South Carolina is partnering with Irmo Branch Library to display pieces of Family Connection’s LOOK! 2023 Photography Exhibit. Family Connection serves South Carolina families who have children with a disability or chronic health condition.

“We are honored to have this opportunity to bring pieces of our current LOOK! collection to the Irmo Branch Library! said Amy Holbert, CEO of Family Connection. “These beautiful photos of the children and youth we serve represent Family Connection’s goals of creating inclusion, equity, and community.”

The photos were taken by professional photographers from across the state who volunteered their time to capture the participants in candid moments doing the things they like to do best. “We hope visitors to the library will take the time to view the photos and read the inspiring stories that accompany them,” added Amy Holbert.

“The Irmo Branch is thrilled to have some of the photos from the LOOK! 2023 exhibit visit us this fall!” says Elizabeth Doyle, librarian. “The photos and stories are a joy to all who view them, and we hope our patrons take the opportunity to explore the exhibit while at the library. Family Connection does wonderful work with our community and we appreciate their partnership.”

The LOOK! photos will be on display September 28th – November 30th. The 2023 LOOK! Book, which features all 80 photos and stories of the participating children and youth is available for purchase at www.familyconnectionsc.org/look. The virtual gallery is also available on the web page.
