First Autism, Now Prosopagnosia. Children Who Can't See Faces

Today I read a disturbing study.  There’s a new malady and it’s called Prosopagnosia. Albert Yonas is a professor of child development from the University of Minnesota and is currently studying 30 children, who in the most simplest terms, have brains which are configured in a way that makes them unable to recognize faces (face blindness). While prosopagnosia sounds like a scary concept, it reminds me of the evocative work of Kiki and Polly. She customizes unique prints based on your personal photos and has a gallery of phenomenal work in her Etsy shop that you can purchase outright if you’re not in the mood to go through all the hoops. Either way, she’s one artist that would enrich any room in the house.
