For my beautiful daughter, Scarlet Sky, whose love inspires me.
No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
1 John 4:12

I began with the intent of celebrating the city I love by connecting with those who share this space with me.

1005 faces is a collaborative art project as it can only be created by the coming together of friends and strangers to create the full scope, and fulfill the goal of photographing 1005 distinct faces.

Through the 1005 Faces project, Sarah Brook took portraits of people across San Antonio’s communities accompanied with signs in which they were encouraged to write what was on their mind. She invited the individuals to showcase who they are and what is important to them. Her motivation for this project was to reveal the face of San Antonio as a true cosmopolitan, multicultural epicenter, full of interesting people who create an awesome place to live. Sarah describes 1005 faces as a collaborative art project, as it can only be created by a collective of friends and strangers who, together, demonstrate the full scope of 1005 distinct faces across San Antonio, TX. The project is meant to be a photographic feature presentation of San Antonio’s diverse communities, and seeks to provide an authentic depiction of the city’s true, multicultural identity.
