"Today, in post-9/11 America, when the country has undergone a cataclysmic shift in polarizing perspectives, and sectarian violence is on the rise throughout the world, it is more critical than ever that we engage globally to understand why. Introducing strangers, even enemies, through unguarded moments of other - the stillness of the frozen photographic moment - creates a safe space where mindfulness, curiosity, and even compassion may grow. My hope is that the bold viewer finds means to enter the frame and recognize some piece of her or himself within. Emotional honesty requires vulnerability, a condition with power to disarm prejudicial distancing. Real understanding is possible in the dissolve.
