can't stop thinking

...about the julie project -- a MUST SEE photography project!! © darcy padilla

an amazingly raw, powerful, heartbreaking, tragic, incredibly-told story. a story like i've never seen before. brilliant photography. an incredible 18-year commitment. simply phenomenal. and painful.

but the project is so much more than the photographs. it's the presentation. the words that accompany the photos. the video on the home page, where the photographer shares some thoughts. the sound clip of the little boy talking to his mom. the photographer's statement, which she closes with

I hope you can’t stop thinking about Julie’s story, I hope it makes you feel. I hope it makes you look at the world differently.

truly... i. can't. stop. thinking.

please take some time to view darcy padilla's the julie project.  and definitely allow yourself time because once you're in, it's almost impossible to get out...until you're done.
