Every day it seems like another tragedy unfolds before our very eyes. There is so much chaos in this world right now, our field of vision has been fractured and skewed, and even for those of us not directly affected, it can be difficult to know where to turn to offer help.
Then there’s looking at this world from above, where we can put our blurred vision in perspective to seek some clarity and to find the bigger picture.
I felt I needed to do more. But I didn’t know what. After brainstorming an idea I thought would make an impact, I’ve joined together with Fine art photographer and New York Times bestseller, Gray Malin, known for his serene aerial birds-eye images to use our creativity and connections across social media to stage this special portrait—a message that the promise of peace is something we can always unite around no matter our race, sexuality, religion and creed. That when we find ways to coexist with each other, the result is always beautiful.
But it’s not always easy to get there and requires a collective effort. We want you to help us spread this message.
