Stories of Beauty

Every single day, I have the privilege of meeting and working with people who make this world a better place. So, I am officially embarking on a new campaign to share #StoriesOfBeauty. Everything from the smallest act of kindness to huge regional, even nation-wide campaigns, that give hope and love to the world, will be posted here on these pages. Good people, great people, are working to chip away at hate, crack open doors of possibility, and #MakeTheWorldBetter … 

What story would you tell if you could photograph of your life?
 
These beautiful kids had their first photography exhibition last week in La Cuadra Talleres Abiertos … It was called LA IMAGEN COMO LENGUAJE (Image as language). It was an international effort because the event was supported by the Ministerio de Cultura, the U.S. Department of State, the Fundación Crearte, the Colombo Americano Pereira – Cartago. Juan Cristóbal Cobo came to give 6 hours of workshops. Then, on top of that, the community lent cameras and smart phones to 20 kids to take home and use to take photos of their lives, their context. Perfect strangers who don’t even know these kids. And these kids shared the narrative of their lives, which took so much courage and introspection. They trusted us with their stories.
