As I was driving home late Saturday afternoon I spotted artists working on this Living Wall in the Kirkwood neighborhood in the east side of Atlanta. Since 2010, artists from around the world have transformed walls throughout the city into visually compelling works of art during the annual Living Walls,The City Speaks conference in August. The Living Walls mission statement is to, “promote, educate, and change perspectives toward public space in our communities via street art.” Above, volunteers Keif Schleifer, Emily Fisher and Derek Dondeville are touching up a wall that had been recently defaced. The wall was painted by the Spanish street artist, Eme in 2012. Eme often incorporates powerful messages, typically one to two words into her creations. The message on this wall was particularly powerful to me on this day for I had been experiencing a dry spell in terms of my photography and I was grappling with whether what I do as a photographer makes a difference. As I conversed with Keif about Living Walls, several motorists enthusiastically thanked the volunteers as they drove by. My encounter was not only inspirational because I witnessed the positive impact that Eme’s art had on the community but it also reminded me to Never Give Up when the road gets bumpy.
