Shutter Sisters Dream Assignment: Picture Hope from LittlePurpleCow Productions on Vimeo.
"Jen Lemen, and I are currently competing in the "Name Your Dream Assignment" photography contest sponsored by Microsoft and Lenovo. Our project, "Picture Hope", is currently ranked in the top three entries thanks to great support from our community. The assignment would send us on a journey to five continents where they'll search for visions of hope in the lives of the very people who have had every reason to abandon hope as nothing more than wishful thinking – former modern day slaves, genocide survivors, young activists, orphans, old visionaries and new immigrants. We'll begin in northeastern Rwanda in a quiet village where two young girls wait to be reunited with a mother they've been missing for more than three years. Our journey ends in the hills of Nepal where an American teenager became the mother of twenty orphans when she decided to follow her heart."
