From the earliest moments of imagining this project, an enormous and wide-ranging array of caring people have stepped up in myriad ways to bring it to life. From my first experiences in the village of Martignano in 2011 to a multitude of grant and fellowship applications with advisors/editors and references, to on the ground collaborators and subjects in Italy and London for the photoshoots and installation of images, we say THANK YOU.
And to the incredibly kind-hearted and passionate staff members of many social justice and arts organizations, donors, and volunteers of all ages and ethnicities, we owe a huge debt of gratitude.
Truly, Facing Ourselves is a dream of creating community, and without communities coming forward as one, would never exist.
