FC: Holders of Hope Portraits of Hope, Healing and Transformation

1: Hope, Healing and Transformation These are the words chosen to describe My Healing Place. In an effort to depict these words, 15 individuals and families were asked to show us where they are today in their journey of grief and healing. Demonstrating enormous courage, they agreed to be photographed. They came bearing quilts and baby blankets, scrapbooks, and clothes worn by loved ones. They took me to trees planted in memory of their son, and to altars in honor of their daughter. They wept and told stories, laughed, danced, and silently remembered. For a brief moment before the camera they allow us to see all the beauty that remains. In these images they show us the many faces of hope, healing and transformation. Ashley Unbehagen Portraits created for My Healing Place's Holders of Hope Luncheon 2011. Thank you to Andrea Turner for assisting with some photo sessions, and thank you to the individuals and families who opened their hearts to us.
