Meet Josh

Posted by
Ralph Jones (Detroit, United States) on 29 July 2016 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Joshua Smith is one of my Focus Hope Excel Photography program students, you may have seen him on TV recently doing a news conference or maybe you've viewed his TED Talk. Josh in an ordinary kid who's done some extraordinary things. A few years ago he opened a lemonade stand and donated the proceeds ($3,000 plus) to the cash strapped city of Detroit prior to the city's bankruptcy. More recently Josh is raising awareness and funds to support Project 490, an organization committed to buying and processing rape kits.

Mission Statement:
To document the city in an attempt to inspire an appreciation and understanding of the uniqueness of Detroit, her buildings, and her people.

Speramus meliora; resurget cineribus.
We hope for better things; it will arise from the ashes.
