This post is a little delayed, but I have been pretty busy this week. Last weekend I was blessed to be able to join together with photographers, make-up artists, hair stylists, and others to change people's lives. It was called help portrait. Their website describes help-portrait as follows:
Just in case you haven’t seen it, here is our video explaining the idea of Help-Portrait.
One man, who had his photo taken at my station was looking at his photo on my computer screen. He began tearing up and telling us how wonderful this was and he previously had "thought about jumping off a bridge." His eyes told too many stories for me to interpret. In that moment, as I was attempting to hand an SD card back to the photographer, I found myself side-by-side to this man and directly across from Jeremy Cowart, and in tears. I slowly turned around and sat back down at my computer, unable to do any editing. This man found this simple thing, his photo, (something we all take for granted in our digital world of facebook and smartphones with cameras), so special and so moving that it would give him hope. This is the worth of a photo. That was help-portrait.
