This portrait series was created as part of a project exploring spirituality and Vermont culture. All of the individuals photographed expressed the intention to live life consciously, based on their own inner vision and voice. The portraits made, and the stories collected with them, represent just a portion of the way we celebrate the sacred, find faith, help heal, pursue peace, and make meaning in our small corner of contemporary America.

This project was funded by a grant from the Vermont Arts Council and the Vermont Community Foundation.
