Kickstarter of the Day: Stronger Shines the Light Inside

Smith5

While Los Angeles-based photographer Angie Smith has shot for the likes of The New Yorker and New York Times, her latest project is for Boise, Idaho — specifically, the dozens of refugees who have resettled in the area.

The proposed project, Stronger Shines the Light Inside, is a large-scale, outdoor exhibition of the intimate portraits and life stories she’s documented during her time in Boise. Her hope is that the success of the project will allow her to take on other resettlement cities throughout the U.S. and continue to shed light on inspiring stories of integration. Check out more images and a video clip on the project below!

“15/20” by Photographer Neta Dror

 

In 2011, Tel Aviv-based photographer Neta Dror photographed 6 Israeli teens, returning 5 years later to photograph them each again. Now in their 20s, Dror notes that the biggest change isn’t physical but emotional:

“It was incredible to see how differently they presented themselves to me and to the camera: all grew more confident and were less willing to expose themselves. It was clear they were now more aware of who they are and what part of themselves they wanted to show.”

“Copy Kitty” by Illustrator Kyung Me

Illustrator Kyung Me explores the various ways we construct false identities in romantic relationships with a series of drawings surrounding a character named Copy Kitty. Going to great lengths to be accepted and adored, Copy Kitty gradually descends into a vortex of fantasy and paranoia. Check out more images from Me’s elaborate narrative series below.
