The entire project collection is outstanding but this one still stands out.

Absolutely terrific gallery of images for a wonderful project. It's so much better to celebrate than fear them.

This ONE! It strikes me as no matter our condition, income level, status, whatever, our job as a father is to be present for our kids

Good, sharp monotone image. Kind of an awkward positioning of the middle woman's index finger/hand, though.

Don't even begin to think I'm criticizing your images.
Just a natural curiosity.

Amazing stuff.

I had to flip through the gallery and look at all the faces. Less than 0.5% of genomic difference and so much pain and suffering has been inflicted in the world due to such an insignificant thing.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Oh WOW! Some of the best portraits I have ever seen. Thank you for promoting the initiative and sharing your work to inspire others.

If I may ask, how is this B&W look achieved? I know the use of light is spectacular, but from a PP standpoint, I have always wondered whether this look is usually the result of a plug-in or manual LR/PS work. Appreciate any input, or resources you can direct me to. Thank you.

Straight out of Capture One. No plugins or manual PS work.

It's a preset I've made.

Love it, just look at their faces and how they show so much about the person.
