Help-Portrait’s Jeremy Cowart in Paste Magazine
Paste magazine’s Nick Purdy has a Q&A with Help-Portrait‘s founder, Jeremy Cowart.
What’s new in your plans for this year?
This will be our third annual event on Dec. 10, worldwide. Photographers, makeup artists, volunteers around the world will be getting together at various locations to give photos to people in need… the homeless, the abused, the elderly, the sick, the forgotten, you name it.
In the past, we haven’t shown any photos. But this year, we’re showing the photos for the first time (only if the subject is willing or interested in telling their story.) It’s a game-changer for us, and I think it will radically grow our movement once the world sees what we get to experience. We’re also letting our subjects write their story on the photo, which also takes it to a new level. I couldn’t be more excited for this year’s event. Seeing all the photos and stories pour in from around the world is going to be my Christmas.
