ServLife hosted our 2nd photo exhibit on Friday, April 17, in Indianapolis. The RESURRECTING BEAUTY global photography exhibit was a production designed to provide a glimpse into a world of passion, pain, heartache, joy, injustice, and reclaimed beauty. Guests filtered into the exhibit throughout the evening at the Gene B Glick Junior Achievement Center, to view photos taken around the world.
Featured local photographers included Katie Basbagill, Mary Beth Jackson, Andy Chen, and Ira Lippke. The displayed photographs were taken throughout Asia and Africa, and captured the lives of individuals in countries where ServLife is at work.
Hillary Nevins, a guest from Indianapolis, felt that each photo had a story to tell. “I love photographs and best off all photos of real life candid moments,” she says. “These people are real and have a story to tell us. Photos can open you up to understand one’s soul, pains and joys. Photography is an art that I really appreciate because of the authenticity and depth it shares with its viewer.”
Products from the ServLife store were also available to guests. “Once I got there I really liked the jewelry made by hand,” Hillary added. “I purchased a necklace that I made sure to wear the next day.”
David Stombaugh and Kendall provided live music throughout the event, as guests mingled and enjoyed light refreshments and conversation around the photo displays. Items from the ServLife store were purchased during the event, as well as photographs. All proceeds benefited the work of ServLife.
