See My Story
See My Story is a collaborative, community-based, multimedia project which combines life-size portrait photography with personal stories in an effort to raise awareness of homelessness in Evanston. Photographer Doug Haight and a small team from the community, including Perspective Gallery’s Bob Tanner and Bill Bridges, worked with project partners Connections for the Homeless and Interfaith Action of Evanston. Local homeless individuals were invited to share their personal narratives in order to gain a deeper understanding of their often complicated lives. Each portrait and its accompanying story is the result of a relationship that was built over time and was based on mutual trust and respect. The project recognizes each participant as a unique individual with a powerful story to tell.
