The #WhyIMask campaign launched on July 28, 2020 with photographers nationwide.  On that day, the United States COVID-19 death toll reached 150,000 - exactly 150 days since our country's first death. 

To raise awareness and continue sharing #WhyIMask stories, I started #150masks - a campaign to offer 150 mask portraits across Chicagoland for free.   

The project evolved into a joyful celebration of life during a devastating and challenging time in our world.
