Using photos to dismantle misconceptions and build empathy.
A photo project by Washington, D.C.-based photographer, Adeline Heymann. This is a photo of Elsa, an El Salvadorian woman from Los Angeles who travelled to DC for Inauguration Day this February. She felt DC is best described by the word UNITY. I've chosen a photo of the Cherry Blossoms to tell her story - which were a gift to DC from Japan. Can her image help educate and bring people together through understanding? I'd like to try.
