A Peace of My Mind began out of the belief that if a single voice can make a small difference, then together, many voices can make a tremendous impact.Library: William F. Laman Public Library Map to the Main Library
In early 2009, photographer John Noltner began interviewing people about their thoughts on peace. The interviews were recorded digitally and combined with a B&W portrait.
The goal is to create a collection of thoughts on peace from people with a wide range of backgrounds and experiences and to use that collection of interviews to foster a larger public conversation on the subject.
The project is based on the premise that we all have important thoughts to share. We all have a view of peace that is very personal - whether that means political peace, spiritual peace, inner peace or something entirely unexpected. And the belief is that at the core, we are all the same - we all long for and dream for the same things.
So the hope is that through conversation, we will begin to understand each other a little better. By sharing, we will create a sense of community, and in our own way, make a stand for peace - in our own lives, in our communities, and in the world that we share.
