Salvation Army’s very special photo exhibit


Featured at the

Hope In The City Breakfast

Humbled to be involved in this project with talented photographers Sandy Sharkey, Brittany Gawley, and Nadine DeLange.

We were asked to capture the faces of those who have found a better path thanks to the Salvation Army. The black and white images portray hope, potential, and most importantly, people who now BELIEVE IN THEMSELVES.

The photo exhibit was featured at the Salvation Army’s ‘Hope in the City’ breakfast Nov 19th at the Shaw Centre. With special guest speaker: Peggy Taillon, founder of the Hera Mission and President of the Bruyere Foundation.

Following are my images of the four beautiful should I had the pleasure of photographing.
