Today Tasra and I are giving a “TED-esque” style presentation at the Senior Portrait Artists Event about the work we’re doing with Teen Identity, a media company dedicated to raising the self-esteem and confidence of every teen girl, as well as addressing the negative images of women in the media. A key part of the presentation is the power of art. What we do as visual artists has tremendous power.
A single photo can move the world
A short PSA can raise awareness of a terible evil, all the while raising the self-esteem of a teen girl.
A movie can change the way millions of people eat
Your work…your art, can be so much more than just a means to make money. It can save a marriage. It can create a movement. It can do so much more than you probably give it credit for.
Are you using your art just to make a living, or a life?
