Description from artist regarding their vision of Peace: I conceived of this photo art piece, a staged love riot, after I wrote a song called "Dear Stranger" which was inspired by an experience I had with a stranger in my hometown of New York City. Since that experience I have made it one of my projects in life to meet and write about strangers I meet around the world. They share their stories of heartbreak, overcoming their past pain and their wish for the world. The more people I meet, the more I realize how similar we all are in our common struggles and desire for peace and love. It has become a movement and a way of living that I wish our world community could learn from, by seeing all strangers as our friends and family, with love in our hearts before judgements, assumptions and prejudices. I believe if we all lived in each others shoes more often it would be a better world.
