Portraits of Resilience is an intimate look into the stories behind Wayne Simpson’s images from his first book of portraiture, Resilient: The Portraiture of Wayne Simpson. Like a book cover, portraits give us a visual synopsis of the life of a person. It’s what catches our eye to dive deeper into a bigger, more elaborate story. But unlike books, we don’t usually get the chance to hear the full story, until now. This virtual event will give the audience an exclusive look into the narratives behind the many remarkable individuals captured by Wayne Simpson while having the opportunity to comment and ask questions. The audience will inevitably see pieces of themselves while experiencing the visual stories of inspiration, tragedy, humanitarianism and resilience.
