'A Day in the Life' Project: Photographs by Street Youth of their Animals 2012
Seattle homeless art exhibition articulates empathy for animals through photography, with exhibits at Peace for the Streets and Mind Unwind Gallery.
With a disposable camera and some guidance from mentors and professional photographers, the participants created photographs during an extended workshop conducted by Art for Animals’ Sake (AFAS). These images reveal the relationships, environments and the greater community the homeless and their allies share with animals. Homeless youth and young adults adopt puppies and kittens to supply surrogate love and a sense of family that is often absent on the street."Empowering youth to explore creative expression while building a more compassionate community."
This exhibition was proudly created in association with Peace for the Streets by Kids from the Streets and with participation of residents from Nickelsville, Seattle.
