We had a great time, yet again, with Faces of Fort Wayne. We hope that you enjoy our project. Just to recap for those of you new to this site; Faces of Fort Wayne is a photo project we’ve been working on that aims to connect the audience with those in their community for an intimate perspective of those that they share the city with. Through a candid series of photos and questions we hope to show some perspectives and Faces in Fort Wayne that you might not encounter in your day-to-day. Enjoy!

[Communicator] What is it like to be a 23-year-old in Fort Wayne?
“It’s not too bad. A lot of people see this town as– people go here to get married and settle down it seems like. I’m hoping to find some life here.”
[Communicator] So that’s not your trajectory?
[Communicator] What’s yours?
“Still young, 23, have some fun and make this town what it once was, I guess.”
[Communicator] What do you want out of your life?
“That is a fantastic question. That is the million dollar question, isn’t it? Right now…Not a whole lot, just enjoying the moment, really… at one time I would have said [my biggest fear] living a normal life, but I don’t know if that’s true anymore. I guess most of my family was average.. so to actually go out and do something and make this town as fun again , make this town as a place to be, a place to live, a place to enjoy.”

“I feel like something bad is going to happen.”
[Communicator] To you or general?
“To the country, I don’t know I just feel like something is going to happen. It’s due, do you know what I mean?”
[Communicator] No, you’ll have to explain that.
“I can’t. I don’t really know how to articulate it.”

[Communicator] What scares you most about the future?
“The Zombie Apocalypse.”
[Communicator] Is that for real?
“Yeah, it’s for real. I think it’s going to happen.”
[Communicator] Are you prepared?
“Yeah I am, I even have a safe house.”
[Communicator] Where is it?
“I can’t tell you that.”

“I’m probably going to go into the army.”
[Communicator] What made you decide to do that?
“Uh, I don’t know.”
