This is a picture of former Prime Minister Julia Gillard. It’s a great photo, that captures the human, personable side of the former leader. But this isn’t just any press shot.
This picture was taken by a 12-year-old girl.
The photographer in question is the talented Miss Sophie Deane.
Sophie has Down Syndrome. On May 4, she was present when then-PM Gillard and Victorian Premier, Denis Napthine, signed the state of Victoria up for the National Disability Insurance Scheme, securing public funds for her healthcare future.
