Your hands tell a story | Art Portraiture | Big Buddies

I’ve been volunteering my time as a photographer the last couple years to a local organization that is dedicated to pairing adults with kids who would benefit from a one on one mentor and friend. BIG BUDDIES of Jackson County, MN believes that it is the responsibility of adults to provide every child with the resources and opportunities needed to grow and mature. One of their youth projects involves bring youth into local nursing homes to interview residents and learn about their life and interests. It’s a great opportunity to build relationships across generations and the kids learn that everyone has a story! The residents stories are written up and framed with a photograph featuring just their hands and an item that related to an important part of their story. The frames are given to residents and are often cherished by them and their families. Here are a few samples of the images captured this past year.
