From a vision to a community project. This was an amazing Journey/Experience that some of the luckiest community artist got to share and experience on Sunday July 31st 2016. As a give back to the community and part of my project photographing community artists and creating their environmental portrait, i had to photograph This no ordinary artist that was born without arms and paints with her feet, in the process of getting to know more about her, Linda Riverosseems to everyone physically with no arms but to me the more i got to know about her, her dedication, drive, strength, joy love and positive energy that she spreads around her, the more she seems to have bigger heart and more arms than anyone i ever known. I was inspired by the powerful gods of the Hindu mythology, gods with so many arm and so many powers. I want most of all to thank 2 very special people that not only believed in my vision and idea to portray Linda in a way that reflects her soul, but made it their own and made it a better vision, and thanks to them it came true, my dear friends Union City art curator AmadoyBlanca Mora and Union City Commissioner Lucio Fernandez. The credit for this journey goes to all the amazing artists that not only participated and donated their time, paint, photography, video, editing but were all emotionally involved because they all have sense of community and all believe that if a community get together there is no limit to what we can do.
