Vision. (n) the act or power of seeing.
Compassion. (n) sympathetic consciousness of others' distress together with a desire to alleviate it.
When these two come together, something beautiful happens. Barriers are torn down. Hope is strengthened. Connections are formed. Lives are changed.
On December 12th, hundreds of people across the globe will be taking part in a photographic experience known as Help-Portrait. A vision inspired by Nashville based photographer, Jeremy Cowart, photographers off all levels, make-up artists, and just folks that want to lend a helping hand will be working together to create a portrait of someone who may not otherwise be able to afford one. The soul of this project is not just about pictures. It's about connection. Community. It's about bringing to light the beauty of people and helping others to see that beauty. Both inside and out.
