People Helping People

An ArtPrize Collaboration:

Photographer: Adam Bird
Writer: Jessica Young
Designer: Danielle Kendra
Project Managers: Maribeth Groen and Kristina Bird

People Helping People is a collection of narrative portraits celebrating a few of the outstanding volunteers who are united in the common cause of improving our community. They are the unsung heroes among us. 

These photographs are meant to give voice to people through art. The bold, simple quotes are intended to support the larger, contextual photos and enhance the visible passion of the individual. When combined with their personal stories, these portraits remind us that there is no one type of person, no age group or chosen few who control the evolution of our community. Each person and organization is different, with their own story and their own reasons for why they do what they do.
