Our mission is to bring attention to and

    memorialize the lives lost and tragically

    altered due to gun violence.  Portraits have

    the unique ability to call out the souls and 

     profoundly affect those who see them.

     Our goal is to present diverse works that 

     in some way relay graphically or through

     narrative the essence of the person being


     We hope that this project will continue to 

     bring some joy and peace to the families

     and friends of victims and, by bringing 

     attention to the scourge of gun violence in

     this way, be a call to action to all who

     see them.
