‘Power Without Love’

Mr. Wallace Pruitt of Seversville | Photography by Charles W. Thomas Jr.

“Power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.” — Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Another exquisite truth from yesterday’s NCNG luncheon keynote by Martin Eakes of Self-Help, paired with a portrait from Giving Back. — VF

For Lovers of Humanity

A loving heart is the truest wisdom. — Charles Dickens

Giving Back reframes portraits of philanthropy, while reclaiming its root meaning: love of humanity. Put simply, each page pictures love.

Wishing “lovers of humanity” everywhere a Happy Valentine’s Day! — VF
