Wil can fly: Photographing the 'big dream'

A two-year-old boy in Utah has become an internet sensation for a most impressive skill - he can fly.

The superpower has been given to him by his father, photographer and blogger Alan Lawrence.

The father of six creates pictures of his son Wil, who has Down's Syndrome, flying and posts them on Instagram.

The project started for fun, but has since taken on a deeper meaning.

Alan recently spoke to the BBC about the images and the awareness they are raising about Down's Syndrome.
