Photographer India Whiley-Morton took the photos of our Myth Busters.  

She really wanted to be involved in the project because she has a family member with a learning disability.

“I’ve grown up with my Auntie Frances who has a learning disability and she is the life and soul of my family. 

“When Mencap approached me about capturing these amazing Myth Busters on camera, I was really keen to be involved.”

“I wanted to be part of this campaign to show the amazing personalities that exist in the learning disability community."

I loved working with each and every one of the Myth Busters - hearing all their stories, learning about their passions and having a dance with them while shooting. It was great fun and everyone was amazing.”
