Now more than ever, we need to come together to celebrate each other – and the simple acts of kindness – that inspire us to DO MORE so that EVERY Quad Citizen can live their best life.
A STRONGER COMMUNITY AWAITS.
Get to know THE Photographers
For many Quad Citizens, Jaawan Arrington is known as the man behind the fascinating The 100 Series. In it, he interviews strangers – all in the pursuit to spread positivity. When he found out about our effort to document Quad Citizens during these challenging times, he was immediately on board.
“In many aspects it’s similar to what I’ve been doing with the 100 Series,” he said. “It’s all about showing off all the amazing people who live here. My photography is all about celebrating people and making them look larger than life.”
When we approached Jessica Sheridan of Shared Light Photography to help us photograph Quad Citizens during the pandemic of 2020, she jumped at the opportunity. The Quad City native took a unique approach to the project, deciding to focus on "makers" who work behind the scenes and are particularly impacted by COVID - like local stage hands, a stylist, a midwife and a restaurant owner.
