Over the last few years, this project has given me so much joy and life. Meeting so many interesting people and hearing so many touching stories. My hope is that I can use my medium to tell those stories and spread nothing but hope, love, and appreciation for all of those in the community who work to make our life a better one. Each life is unique, given its own chance at this world, we are tossed into. Every one of us collaborates on a daily basis, creating this greater narrative we call life. My vision is to continue to push forward and show the potential that each one of us possesses.
This week’s face is special because now I get to share each one of your stories with her, helping her grow and learn throughout life.
Thank you to everyone who’s taken part in this project and to everyone who looks out to read them each week. What started as a thought in my photography class has become something much larger than I could have ever imagined and I am so excited for what is ahead. You make this place special. You are the life to this little corner of the Earth we inhabit. You are the Face of New Bedford.
