Photos show challenges people with disabilities face

“The Plight of the Mentally Disabled” is a unique exhibit that shows the lives of people with disabilities in foreign countries. Many people with disabilities are often abandoned and ignored by society. Photojournalism captures the reality of how they are perceived in their country. Roosevelt University’s Gage Gallery features walls of photographs by Eugene Richards of people with mental and physical disabilities from several countries.
