“I have a story to tell,” read one board. “I survived breast cancer,” declared another. “I am the whomp whoomp,” stated a third, somewhat mysteriously. All were in response to questions asked while people waited to have their portrait taken during Faces of Dudley. More about the inspiration behind this project in Kate Gilbert’s essay from Faces of Dudley, now available on Blurb.
Yesterday, we brought copies of Faces of Dudley to share with our friends at the Dudley Branch of the Boston Public Library. Copies are now available for sale on Blurb for $7.25 so everyone can remember that day when a neighborhood came together in pride.
