In just a matter of ten minutes, I felt as though I had travelled the world.
This past year I have worked closely with the Kingston Community Health Centres, Kingston Immigrant Partnership and the City of Kingston to celebrate the "Meet Your Neighbour" Project. This project allowed me to spend time connecting and hearing stories from individuals that have immigrated to Kingston. The project was created so that we could highlight individual residents of different backgrounds through personal profiles and portraits.
This photographic journey opened me up to several new and inspiring members of our community and I am so excited to share each one with you.
Here is a sneak peek of the beautiful individuals I was able to spend time with. The full collection is hanging in the Royal Way at Kingston City Hall for the next two weeks. This is open to the public and all are welcome :)
A special thank you to Paul Robertson, our City Curator, for working so closely with me on this project. Thank you to Sunita Tayal Gupta, facilitator for Kingston Immigration Partnership and Ruth Noordegraaf, manager of immigrant services at the Kingston Community Health Centres for bringing this project to our Kingston community and showcasing the beautiful pockets of diversity.
Lastly, a special thank you to all the individuals that shared your story with me. I feel so blessed to have worked with each one of you.
Keep on and continue to #SpeadYourAwesome!
