The Big Picture
Heart Gallery portraits must tell a story. Photographers create a little window into a child’s soul, hoping to plant the seed of adoption in the heart and mind of the viewer. Tampa’s Heart Gallery is gifted with 25 professional photographers, a talent pool of diverse artists who volunteer their time and expertise.
From award-winning photojournalists to the most sought-after fine art photographers in town, each uses their own style to capture the unique spirit of a waiting child. For most viewers, these photographs will be their first encounter with the real faces of children in the foster care system. Heart Gallery photographers are able to tackle these very special assignments with dignity and grace.
