Photographer Oliver Hellowell has Down's syndrome, which his mother says means he sees the world differently to most other people. Oliver's unique way of capturing the natural world has recently gained him a lot of fans. Just over a year ago his mother Wendy O'Carroll set up a Facebook page for the eighteen-year-old's photography. That page now has over ten and a half thousand followers. • "It's not just the numbers that have surprised the family, it's the range of people," says Wendy. The page has fans from Brazil to Alaska. Oliver hopes that photography - particularly of birds - can become his full-time profession.
