Learning Center Foundation
Join our conversation with award-winning portrait photographer Michael Collopy as he shares stories from his new book Courage, an inspiring project that focuses on individuals who have displayed bravery through acts of courage. In his latest collection Collopy invites readers to question their own perceptions of what courage means and highlights that we may find courage where others do not.
As one who prefers to be in the background, it is the humility and empathy with which he relates to his subjects that has earned Collopy the opportunity to photograph the world’s greatest peacemakers. His life work has found him on the streets of Calcutta capturing the tireless commitment of Mother Teresa and on Skid Row in Los Angeles documenting the transformation of gang members through Greg Boyle’s Homeboy Industries. He gives us a window into their souls and a sense of their potential impact on the world. Michael Collopy has received numerous awards for his work including the Martin Luther King Peace Award from Stanford University.
