Jeremy Cowart is a professional artist in Nashville, Tennessee, who has photographed rock stars such as Sting and Britney Spears. But on Saturday, he turned his lens on people unlikely to be recognized by anyone but family.
Cowart staged a one-day, worldwide photo shoot called Help Portrait.
"We just want to show people that they are beautiful, that they are valued," Cowart told CNN.
Cowart used the Internet months ago to spread his idea: shoot everyday people, especially the disadvantaged, the homeless, people down on their luck and struggling families. He wanted to make them feel special.
