Masie Crow Part Two: Genetic Disorder, Prader-Willi

with 2 comments

Photojournalist Maisie Crow’s work is so captivating that I couldn’t just do one post about her.

This video story is about a young man with Prader-Willi Syndrome. It’s a very rare genetic disorder that I had never heard of before I saw this video.

It involves social and emotional problems as well as an insatiable appetite.

In the video his father recounts the trials of raising a special child. It’s a touching profile of their relationship.

  1. Great example. The pictures really “tell” the story. Plus the pulsating voice over — hungry, hungry, hungry … food, food, food. That really has an impact. Made me hungry.

  2. wow… That is a very brave, honest father. I know what it is like to live with the hunger of Prader-Willi Syndrome. A raw deal, yep. My daughter, too.
