"In these touching and grand portraits, what is felt is expressed in the purest most intimate sense. Each portrait in brilliant color, generated background, elegant black and white, metaphorical, fantastic, sentimental and hopeful is a way of asking for a future, a way of demanding what is rightfully theirs, a life of happiness, of hope and of dreams come true." —Rosa JH Berland, writer & curator from the foreword.

Overview

Art Start’s The Portrait Project offers homeless and court-involved New York City teens, who rarely have access to the arts, the opportunity to create empowering dreams of their future and show the world how they want to be seen. Through creative workshops and dialogue, participants explored personal identity and envisioned their lives without boundaries. With support from world-class photographers, those visions now come to life within an immersive installation and book. Representing a picture of inspiration and hope, The Portrait Project challenges the belief that the future simply will be a continuation of a difficult past. When given the freedom to imagine, the courage to believe and the resources to create, we profoundly transform how we interact with the world.
