Images of Grace 2017
Right now, there are St. Louisans working hard to change their lives and overcome difficult circumstances in order to give their children better than they have had. Grace Hill is right there with them, providing family support services and opening worlds of opportunity for children, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, and seniors.
Images of Grace® is a collection of art created by Grace Hill families. For seven months, ten Grace Hill families document their day-to-day lives while being mentored in the art of photography. These Grace Hill families are taught photographic fundamentals such as lighting, composition and the development of point of view, and editing.
Despite the economic and social realities for these photographers, the collection reflects pride in community, a love for family and a passion for sharing their lives. Images of Grace photographers include promising Head Start graduates, hard-working entrepreneurs, and resilient community leaders who have been documenting their daily journey in the City of St. Louis.
Images of Grace® culminates in a gala celebration where the photographs are introduced to the public and are available for purchase. Proceeds from the evening benefit the programs of Grace Hill.
Join us on Saturday, November 11, 2017 at Bissinger’s Caramel Room to celebrate their journey and help open the door to more opportunities through Grace Hill. The evening will include a delicious dinner, drinks, and roasted s’mores on the terrace. However, the true highlight of the night is connecting with Grace Hill, its families and your fellow guests through photography.
