ABJ’s “Faces of Grief” Photo Shoots
These emotion-evoking photos are both cathartic for the griever and help us raise awareness while we promote open discussion on the difficult topic of grief. Grievers are photographed expressing a meaningful phrase, on their journey to find a “New Normal.” (Click to see larger photo & story. Patience please as growing gallery takes time to load.)
“When I first saw the photo gallery on the ABJ website, I immediately connected on a personal level with the strength,courage, love and loss of the people in the photos…(After losing two of my three children) I did the photo shoot with my remaining child, Michael. It is such a unique way to allow us to express our pain and love. It is so powerful, cathartic and healing. My son Justin died 20 years ago, my daughter Kimberly died 2 1/2 years ago. Up until this photo shoot, I don’t think Michael had ever truly expressed his loss. He felt it was creative, and was proud to wear his siblings names on his arms, and of course, it meant so much to me…
