I got a message from my friend Aras about an upcoming block party to celebrate the arts and had no idea what was in store when I showed up to photograph. An amazing group of talented and beautiful people (volunteers and guests) were all raising money for the Cheshire Project, which is basically a summer camp for those with disabilities. Watching Damien Rice perform an acoustic song with background singing from the campers and seeing everybody dancing and singing together helped reaffirm that there is a lot of good in this world after all.
