The Edge Photo ExhibitPosted: January 7, 2015
It all still seems unreal to me. When I started this blog in July of 2013, I never thought my photographs would be shown anywhere else other than on this blog. But in the last three months, I crossed paths with some amazing individuals who also feel the same compassion toward the homeless. Some of these folks are also photographers like me, and one in particular, James Eikman, has been putting together a photo exhibition to raise awareness of the problems that homeless people face. He’s invited me and other photographers to join him, which I gladly did. So, here is a picture of my images in print, with stories of the people on accompanying cards. The images are now on display along with the works of 5 other photographers at the Greenwood Public Library through the month of January 2015. For those of you who are close enough to get to it, the address for GPL is 310 South Meridian Street, Greenwood, IN 46142. The library is open on Monday through Thursday, from 9 AM to 8 PM; Friday and Saturday, from 1 PM to 5 PM; and it is closed on Sundays.
I now have contact information for a church that is interested in hosting an exhibition and learning how they can be a help to the homeless. So it looks like I will be collaborating with my new found photographer friends and advocates of the homeless community again in the near future. I’m so excited to see where else this path will lead! Thank you all for the encouragement and feedback you’ve given me. Together, we can change things!
