Health facts are important. Some of these facts, however, can be discouraging. What would happen if we focused on healthy community activities?— Healthy Portraits does just that.
Healthy Portraits highlights healthy success stories through photography and storytelling. It is a way to celebrate communities making positive changes towards wellness. This project is different in two ways—1) it focuses on healthy change, and 2) it returns the photos back to the communities.
This project is funded by OMH grant number AIAMP120014.
We find Alaska health stories that inspire, motivate, and bring communties together.
To photograph the story, we travel to each community at least twice.
On the last visit, we return the photos to celebrate their success stories of health.
