Someone told me a story about a gentleman who took a huge risk to save two people’s lives. I started to think about what makes someone a hero and how we define heroism. I wanted to get people thinking about their own definitions of heroism and about how they might react if they found themselves in the same circumstances as my subjects. I have photographed people who reacted decisively at a critical moment, people who faced an issue head on as well as individuals who have spent their lives giving to others. I hope their stories are thought provoking.
