this is a project that has been burning a hole in my heart. we all sing our pure and shaky and earnest songs, to ourselves, our kids, our pasts. we sing because we need to hear our voices out loud, because it gets lonely sometimes, because it hurts, because the joy cannot fit in our […]

  • Debbie Wibowo - This project really keeps me captivated. I love the exploration of feeling and all the images that accompany it. I’ll be a true follower of this project.ReplyCancel

  • Inspired - I am not one who cries easily, but these entries have all brought tears that could easily become sobs if I let them. They speak to me, inspire me; as a photographer, as a mother. Sandra Coan, you have inspired me the most. I have always held back, too scared to make those postcards and feel that terror if someone dares to hire me. If you could do it with one beautiful photograph, than I can too. Maybe because of you, I will stop holding back on my risk, stop making excuses, put my own work out there into the eyes and hands of others, and allow myself the fear and freedom of living my dream. Thank you all for giving the world this beauty.ReplyCancel

  • ana rocha - I am deeply moved by the project and the so many wonderful images accompanied by so many talented photographers who were so brave to pair the images with words which came from their hearts. Thank you for bringing such heartfelt images and statements that are all true to many of us.

    I could not bring myself to read it all in once. They are powerful and I need to digest them gradually. Think. Ponder.

    Like so many in there. I am professional photographer. Children is my favourite subject. I took many many risks in life but none so big as declare myself a professional photographer specialized in children photography. Through those many years, I concluded that authenticity in our industry comes from one simple fact. To become a photographer we need to accept who we are before even any given roles were adopted or given to us. Photography is a self discovery journey for sure. But it is the one that take us back to the very moment we were kids. To our own journey in life. That is why to become a pro photographer is the biggest risk in my journey, because every single click is an opportunity to travel to my past and review my story , combined with someone else who happens to be in front of my lenses. Thank you for brining such deep thoughts for this Friday. You are one of a kind!ReplyCancel
