Utah Photographer Turns Disabled Children into Super Heroes
A Utah photographer named Josh Rossi has done Bruce Wayne's job by bringing the Justice League together. He transformed six kids with disabilities into Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash, Cyborg, and Superman.
He got the idea earlier this year after he created a Wonder Woman costume for his three-year old daughter. Ever since that photo of his daughter went viral, several parents of sick kids reached out to him to see if he could do the same thing for their children.
Rossi jumped at the opportunity. After three weeks designing the costumes, Rossi met up with the kids at McGrew Studios to take the pictures. Rossi said about the experience, "I’m thrilled to finally do it and show the world how inspiring and strong they are. I honestly feel that this is the best thing I’ve ever done.”
The Census Bureau has found that some 6.2% of children ages 5 to 15, or 2.8 million kids, have disabilities.
