All of this happened in 2013? Wow.
Agreeing to photograph the year of SOUP was definitely one of my best decisions of 2013. I don’t even know what to say about it, which is okay since other people are more eloquent or more informative.
I have been consistently blown away by how well-organized, well-supported (by local businesses), well-staffed (all volunteers), and well-curated (all decor made by local artists and volunteers) this event has been. And let’s not overlook how well-fed the attendees were! But what I love most is that this is such a simple, accessible way for a community to come together, share a goal, and support an artist’s vision. The original SOUP (Detroit) website shares tips for creating a SOUP event to fit your own community.
If you’re in the Charlottesville area, you should go to the Charlottesville Soup website and join their mailing list right now.
