Six months ago I started working on an advocacy project entitled Real Stories, Real People. My commitment to this project lured me away from photographing people on the streets and into people’s homes and day to day lives. Although I have missed my weekly ventures on the streets of Atlanta, I have found fulfillment in photographing the lives of families and persons living with a developmental disability. Their stories are inspiring, joyful, poignant and at times heart-wrenching, and they demand to be told. I feel privileged to be entrusted with these stories and am honored by the new friendships I have made. You can learn more about this project and view the photo essays I have created thus far at http://realstoriesrealpeople.org. I hope you will sign up to follow this blog and join me on this new journey as I continue to bring these stories to you.
