Hello!

I am Reading Beardslee

I am here because I love bringing people together with photography

Meet Pam!

She is 52 years old and has Down’s Syndrome.

She is my Aunt and I have known her my whole life

This is where Pam lives.

this is where pam lives now she lives in some place outside of homestead, not with us.

Pam’s Home

Family room

Kitchen

It looks like a home.

And they call it a home.

5 bedrooms

But it doesn’t feel like “home.”

ut, there was one huge thing missing: a sense of home and belonging. I left her facility thinking how sad it was that Pam’s new home had no pictures up on the walls. It felt barren, not like the home or family that my loving Aunt had grown up in. Then I realized that I could help Pam transition by actually taking pictures of her and her new home family.

This is why I started PhotoGetherness

PhotoGetherness is a non-profit endeavor to help bring a sense of home to group living facilities in South Florida.

Why does it work?

When you go to someone’s house, what do you see on the walls?

A picture is worth a thousand words.

have you ever heard of the saying A picture is worth a thousand words? well that’s not even the half of it. Photos are what bind us together. They capture our memories and ,over time, seeing the memories visually (in the fphot) keeps us close even as time between the memories go by.

How does it work?

Make a house feel like a home

Preserve memory, and create positive outcomes

Instill a commonality of purpose

The Power of Photos

Research shows that photographs are a powerful tool in establishing a real sense of belonging, and they help make a house look and feel like a homeInstill a commonality of purpose – like team photos prove that that creates a sense of community among the team weve all been on a team - its gerat - reserach shows that photogarphs actually help a team, feel like a team. - just a photograph! and family photos in a house – when you go to someone's house what do you usually see on the walls? BABY: ha one of your parents ever shown you a picture of you from when you were younger? when u were onger or paretns showed u pics of urself and overtime u saw that picture over and over agian - photos have the power to create a memory that you never actullay created

this is why photogetherness works: i created a community in my acuts home throug photogarphy

this is mimi - this photograph brings out her who lighthearted essence,

I took pictures of every one in their individual unit, i framed each pcites and i had them hung on the walls, additionally: i made a family calander - in the kitchen. even i love calanders and im a digital native. - they felt special.- the fake angry the one on the left potryas

these pictures show their essence, but in a way that makes them both seem so genuine and warm. the lighthearted smil on BLANKs face - this was truley wonderful.
