Photo Series: 100/2014 – #3
100/2014 – #3
Back in January, I started a new photo series for 2014. The idea is to take 100 street portraits of complete strangers during the year. I’m way behind, but expect to rally during the warmer months. Here’s today’s portrait.
100/2014 – #3: Meet Chris Skellenger, executive director of Buckets of Rain. Chris hails from Empire, MI. Today, I found him on a tractor in Detroit, tilling up a few vacant lots to be used for urban gardens. Chris’ organization is teaming up with the Detroit Rescue Mission to “empower the world’s poorest people to increase their food security by growing their own vegetables.”
“We do work in Detroit, Flint and Guatemala. I’m originally from Detroit. Sure has changed. But we’re all doing what we can, right?”
