ABJ’s “Portraits of Loss” Photo Shoots
These beautifully touching photos are cathartic for the griever and help raise awareness while promoting open discussion on the difficult topic of grief. Grievers are photographed expressing a meaningful phrase on their journey to a new normal. (Click for larger photo/story. Patience please… 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…
