'NOS, WHY NOT?' works to facilitate inclusion through photography, creating an international network of photographers with disabilities. We are a nonprofit association that teaches  professional photography skills to people with intellectual disabilities to increase self-esteem, inclusion and visibility. Our method of teaching photography to our students provides the necessary conditions for them to be able create quality work. In this way, "Nos, Why Not?" agency of photographers with intellectual disabilities, was born.

The agency has taught more than 100 students, 3 of them are also blind, and one blind from birth (who now knows colors through music). The photographers are in Madrid, Barcelona and Galicia. It has also helped to create a group of photographers with intellectual disabilities Moro Photo in Nord-Odal (Norway), New York and Buenos Aires

Photographers "Nos, Why Not?" have photographed congresses, corporate portraits, concerts, press conferences, and they make their own reports and products to raise awareness and to benefit the society

"Nos, Why Not?" thinks of a community, with a network of photographers and a collective intelligence, that helps social and labor inclusion in a creative and cultural way, where they are the protagonists.
