From Our Hearts; Sharing Stories
Photographer: Susan Lirakis
Exhibit Title: From Our Hearts; Sharing Stories
Location: United States
I often find myself, mistakenly or not, confronted with the existential questions of “Why am I here? What has meaning for me? What is a purpose-filled life?” For the photographs in this series, I seek to answer these questions through portraits and interviews with my subjects. Of each of them, I ask questions like, “What makes you want to get out of bed in the morning? What feeds you? Where do your dreams come from? How do you come to listen to them?” The answers are inspiring, comforting, and joy-filled, and the enthusiasm with which each speaks of their passions is energizing. Though the specifics of our actual stories may be unique, the stories also connect us with their shared humanness. In a time of rapid and drastic change, it's helpful to look to the spaces between moments--where joy abides and the questions no longer matter.
Note: Paired with each of the portraits is an excerpt from a longer interview. Audio bits are available, too, via QR code.
