The Veterans Portrait Project is made up of digital black-and-white portraits of veterans from WWII to Operation Enduring Freedom and everyone in between. Some of the subjects are smiling, and others are gazing at a distant point, but in each, an unseen light catches the emotion in their eyes. Stacy, a veteran of more recent wars, captures the veteran's character and the experience etched in their faces while listening to their recollections of war and their time in service. Stacy began the Veterans Portrait Project in Charleston, SC, while recovering from her own combat injuries. While she sat for hours in waiting rooms, she couldn't help but to notice the men and women around her. She reached out to hear the stories of veterans from every branch of service, generation and conflict and felt inspired to bring her camera and take their portraits, leading to the project that now fills the walls of a number of VA Hospitals across the United States. Today, Stacy continues her project and has photographed veterans from coast to coast. What started as Stacy's path to recovery and healing has now grown into her personal mission to honor and thank her brothers and sisters for their service in the best way she knows how, photography.

The B&H Event Space partners with major photography manufacturers in the imaging industry and academic institutions in the arts to produce a wide range of workshops and seminars covering a vast spectrum of topics.
