A Lens Towards Healing

An Evening for the South Boulder Community

A Lens Towards Healing as featured in the Daily Camera  and on 9 News.

The project is the brainchild of Ross Taylor, a University of Colorado Boulder professor and photographer. Taylor is working on the photo project in conjunction with the Museum of Boulder to honor and document the people impacted by the King Soopers shooting in March. He used the #Boulderstrong Resource Center for many of his portraits.

Taylor visited the memorial in the week after the King Soopers shooting to take photographs, but left with the sense there was more he could do.

That’s when he came up with the idea for the portrait project.

Speaking to the Daily Camera, he said, “I … continue to believe in the power of shared story. “As a community, when we identify and see not only ourselves but others in our community and a commonality, it can promote aspects of healing.”

A viewing of the work will be available December 14th at 6 pm at the Chautauqua Community House.
