Each of our identities is born out of a place and a story-the defining moments that transform us. Through images and words, Born Here Project documents people and their origin stories, exploring the concepts of place and identity. Large-scale prints embody the stories of past Born Here subjects. There also will be live photo sessions May 13-16 so gallery visitors can join Born Here by being photographed and telling their origin stories. The project is currently published on Facebook, Tumblr and Instagram with thousands of worldwide followers.
