Found Faces

Some of you may already have heard about the quest I am on which I call "FOUND FACES".    The story goes... Found Faces is a collection of naturally occurring "faces" in the environment around us.  It was in 2003 when the first face "found" me, and they've been revealing themselves to me ever since.  The faces, all naturally occurring and not manipulated for the camera represent a wide range of personalities and emotions from worried to happy.
My true goal for this project was to make kids aware of all the fun faces hidden within our surroundings.   To stop and really look, and to see deeper than what's just on the surface. Throughout this journey, I've found that this project can speak to the child in all of us.  Since this quest began, many e-mails have been sent my way from numerous people who have also taken photos of their own found faces and shared them with me.  These actions are exactly what the project embodies.  
Found Faces is a project for the masses.  Now go find YOUR faces!  =)
