A talented York photographer with Down’s syndrome has been shortlisted in an international competition.

David Kenward, from Wheldrake in York, submitted three images to the My Perspective contest and his entry called ‘Poppy Field’ has now been chosen as one of the final 25 to be presented to the judging panel.

David, an accomplished photographer who has sold framed work and had his photographs exhibited at the Menier Gallery in London, said: “Having entered the My Perspective competition before, I am very excited to be shortlisted again. I want people to feel happy when they look at my photos. It makes me feel proud when people like them.”

About his nominated photograph, David said: “I took this on an evening walk through the fields near where I live. I bent down and took it looking up.”

My Perspective is an annual competition for people with Down’s syndrome. It receives entries from around the world and this year’s shortlist – which the head judge called “truly outstanding” – includes images from Greece, the USA and New Zealand. The winners will be announced at a ceremony on Thursday in Kew Gardens, London.
