This gallery features a Veterans Portrait Project at Raritan High School in Hazlet, NJ, on May 17, 2017. The purpose of this event is to provide photography students with advanced studio lighting and portrait photography skills, while also giving the students an opportunity to interact with local military veterans. Each student had the rare chance to take a portrait of a local area veteran with the guided support of former combat photographer and founder of the Veterans Portrait Project, Stacy Pearsall. Not only did the students gain new photographic skills through Pearsall's teachings, but they also reached out to important members of their community. They were able to say thank you to America's heroes through the art of photography. Pearsall's VPP images are in black and white and the students' work is full color.
