The Candid Frame 303 – Sarah T. Skinner & Marc Raco

Photographer Sarah Takako Skinner created the HOPE IS PROJECT as a way to understand the nature of Hope and inspire others to find it.

Takako has traveled the world, interviewing subjects and handing them a Holga camera and a roll of film, providing them with one simple instruction: photograph hope.

With the collaboration of a team of influencers, the project seeks to place cameras in the hands of many people, challenging them to share their stories and capture images embodying hope. This will capture the continuation of Takako’s journey, and can become one of the largest and most influential art exhibits in history — true partnership between art and purpose.

It is a project of transformation and impact focused on the understanding, discovery, and harnessing of the power of hope through the vehicle of an inspiring photographic process. The mission is to engage the power of photography along with a process of exploration, storytelling, and self-reflection to widely inspire hope, effect lasting and meaningful change, and contribute to growth and development in fields of social work, medicine, mental health, tolerance, rehabilitation and recovery.
