"It wasn't really a goal or an intention to focus on Alexis Gallant, but I found that I often kept gravitating back to her," says photographer Maayan. Alexis attended camp with her twin sister, Danielle; both girls have cerebral palsy. “Alexis was one of the first people who kind of realized that I was there,” says Maayan. “She said: 'Oh, you're not going to run over my toes, are you?' She was really, really outspoken – this tiny little girl with this huge voice. And then, within five or 10 minutes of me being there she was asking me to come closer.”
