The Nothing Special project includes photos by 50 disabled young people who are members of the Young People’s Inclusion Network, which is part of the charity Kids.

The young people were given photography training between October 2007 and January 2008 by PhotoVoice, a charity that helps disadvantaged people by teaching them photography skills.

A statement from Kids said the failure to understand the requirements for the inclusion of disabled young people created an “us and them divide”.

It added: “This project seeks to bridge that divide by enabling young people to directly voice the messages most important to them.”

The exhibition will run from 26 to 29 March at the Novas Contemporary Urban Centre in Southwark Bridge Road, south London
