PORCH PORTRAITS

By Catherine Carter

Mirehaven is a community for active adults aged 55 and over. Each year the community raises funds for an Albuquerque charity through games, sports, and auctions.. In 2019, the community raised more than $22,000. The 2020 charity is Meals on Wheels, Albuquerque. Meals on Wheels performs a vital function in normal times; during the pandemic it is more important than ever for many Albuquerque residents.

This series of portraits is a fundraiser for Meals on Wheels. The community residents contributed $25 or more each for a casual portrait made on the residents' front porches. The photographer and volunteers followed the social distancing guidelines carefully, including wearing face masks. Portrait-making will continue at least through May.
