THROUGH OUR EYES PROJECT GAVE OUT 100 CAMERAS TO HOMELESS PEOPLE IN SPARTANBURG AND ASKED THEM TO PHOTOGRAPH THEIR LIVES. OVER 700 PHOTOS WERE TAKEN AND 20 FINALISTS WERE CHOSEN TO BE ON DISPLAY AT THE CHAPMAN CULTURAL CENTER ALL MONTH. THE COMMUNITY IS INVITED TO THE GALLERY SHOW TO SEE THROUGH THE EYES OF THE HOMELESS AND TO VOTE ON THEIR FAVORITE PHOTOS BY GIVING SPARE CHANGE. PROCEEDS WILL GO TO LOCAL MINISTRIES SERVING THE HOMELESS AND THE TOP 3 PHOTOS WILL WIN PRIZES.
Homelessness is a real issue involving real people with real stories. The community can help make sure the photographers’ voices are heard by visiting the gallery, contributing money by voting and taking steps to serve the homeless around them.
