Back in September 2019, Deborah Cole wrote an article called, “There’s No Place Like Home for Street Photography” all about finding inspiration in your own backyard, in your own city where you may have even been born and raised. She wrote, “As is often the case, the acres of diamonds are in our own backyard. Opening one’s mind, heart and eyes helps us see the stories unfolding right in front of us.”
That said, Deborah has always been an avid traveler, since long before she found those acres of diamonds. She has put together a photo exhibit called “The Heart and Soul of Others” featuring portraits of people she has met in some distant places around the world, specifically Bhutan and Cuba. Here’s how she describes the show:
“No matter what the governmental influences in all countries, people are still people throughout the world with hearts and souls fed by love, care, family, purpose and spirit. Stresses appear in all lives, but the heart and soul of the people survives and endures.
As a street photographer I have had the privilege to interact with the Cuban and Bhutanese people capturing the beauty of their faces and their everyday lives.
By understanding more about our brothers and sisters of all nations I hope to reinforce the idea that we are all ONE in this world with similar needs and goals. And through this compassion emerges love.”
You can meet Deborah at the show (and enjoy a little wine and cheese too!). Here’s the when and where:
