Alysia Burton Steele


Alysia is a photographer and writer. I don’t think I have ever been more inspired. The stories she told about the women she met was so eye opening. I truly feel like to have had that experience was important. It really made me look at the people in my life differently. Sometimes the only thing you will have left of a person is their photo. I liked how she took the photos in the homes of the women. It made it feel fresh and real. I think it’s great that this started out as a personal project for her and slowly grew into her book. I think when projects start out at that way, something about them feels more loved.

I had the opportunity to meet Alysia after the lecture. It was nice to speak with her and get advice. It really inspired me to become for personal with my photography. Even photos hold stories.
