Perspectives offers 5 very different writing stories, commentaries, or poems for each of the 25 photos presented in each version of the series, or 125 pieces in all. No rules. No limits. No right or wrong way. Writers were inspired from photographs to write whatever they saw, thought, or felt. For example, the above black and white cemetery photo resulted in:
1 - a heartwarming story about a dead grandfather,
2 - a powerful piece about 9/11,
3 - a humorous account that includes Al Roker,
4 - an emotional recollection about a piano, and
5 - a dramatic childhood story going back to Old Italy.
Reading Perspectives, you will be inspired from the diverse writers’ viewpoints as well as the photographers’ creativity. Space is provided so that you can share your own stories, if you want, and potentially, change the way you, and others, see the world. Perspectives shows how even when we look at the same image, we all see differently, all communicate in our unique ways, and all need our voices to be heard!
