Lacey Dippold's first calling in life is to be a mother. The second is to be a photographer. She is a natural light photographer based in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Lacey will be travelling with PWB to capture Boomers.
PWB asked Lacey a few questions about her upcoming trip.
WHAT MAKES YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT WORKING WITH BOOMERS?
I have been shooting professionally for five years and have always loved documenting projects that have a purpose. For the past five years, I have been searching for a place to make an impact using my skills in photography. A photo can be enormously powerful. It can bring awareness, spread passion and create an instant connection with its viewer. When this is paired with a story, the impact is even more powerful. I know that I can bring that connection to others through my photography with Boomers.
HOW DO YOU BELIEVE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR THEM?
I have four daughters and their future is enormously important to me. I have sought out the best schools and curriculum, even in Kindergarten, to make sure they are being set up for success. I firmly believe that education starts very early. Not having that opportunity for them is terrifying. I absolutely love the fact that Boomers cares about the education for young people in Ghana and wants to give them that same opportunity. I find that people can forget that there are places out there where education is not a birthright. Where we forget that a culture is different from ours. I want to bring this to the forefront of as many minds as I can, starting with my own and my children. To make a bigger difference, we must start with making an impact where we can and spread that like ripples. I want to be a part of this ripple effect and I know photography can do just that. I want to look into the faces of those people in Ghana who are a part of the difference and who have been a recipient of it. I want to hear their stories and feel their hearts and bring that to the people of the world.
WHAT MESSAGE WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEND YOUR SUPPORTERS?
I am so grateful for my supporters partnering with me on this adventure. Without them, this would not be a possibility. The difference starts with them and together we can bring awareness about Boomers.
