It is not the sort of power that you sit on top of look out over other people and it doesn’t give you the right to tell anyone what to do, but it is utterly liberating. The faces that you see below were not put on for the camera–this is an exhibition of genuine connection between the people at the Mission, photographer Eydie McConnell, Michaël Veremans, and Kyle Veremans.
