How can art save the world? Photographers have the gift to capture a moment of beauty. And, capturing moments of beauty for a person who has never known s/he is beautiful, can give life back to the most downtrodden of spirits--proving everyone holds a spark of the imago dei.
Jeremy Cowart wondered how he could give back, offering his gift of capturing the lovely in those who may have never seen that loveliness. His Help-Portrait movement has sparked interest around the world to provide photos to those individuals and families in need. His website provides the tools to do the following:
1. Find someone in need
2. Take their portrait
3. Print their Portrait
4. And Deliver Them.
If you're a photographer -- check out this movement. Your art could change the world. Consider joining the community:
