Coming in Spring 2016 - Inspirational Book about our Veterans

National Geographic Books and award-winning authors Robert H Miller and Andrew Wakeford who wrote and photographed Portraits of Service Looking into the Faces of Veterans have come together to create an entirely new book tentatively called Veteran’s Voices: Remarkable Stories of Heroism, Sacrifice and Honor. This book will consist of nine sections that will honor and explore the unique lives and remarkable stories of our men and women in the United States military.

National Geographic plans to release this book on Memorial Day 2016. This book promises to become a national gem and will honor America’s veterans in photographs and short essays. National Geographic and the authors are looking for veterans from all walks of life to share their unique stories of service. Special emphasis will also be given to organizations who support veterans.

Stories with Purpose - “Listening to the heartfelt stories of veterans has changed our perspective on life and the sacrifices that these men and women have made for us to protect American freedom. We learn something amazing every time we talk to our veterans and we are excited to share that experience with our readers.”

Portraits of AIDS in Africa; A Tale of Two Villages
Learn about AIDS in Africa - Botswana and South Africa

Coming soon: Of the total number of people living with HIV worldwide, 34% reside in ten countries in Southern Africa. Portraits of AIDS in Africa takes readers to the tiny village of Sefhare, Botswana, for first-person accounts of what it's like to live in the midst of this treacherous epidemic.

In the moments when we feel closest to our fellow human beings, there comes a certain comfort, a certain awareness of being connected – a sense of "us." The mission of Portraits of Us is to capture those moments, to hold onto them and to share them. For we humans are more alike than we are unalike -- and, when we are conscious of that fact, we discover our commonality, find love, and create peace.

At Portraits of Us, our vision is to build a library of the human experience. We're taking our cameras and our tape recorders to places that many of us will never go, to bring back stories with the power to enliven us all.
