Life is the struggle to hold on to love, even through periods of weakness. Photography isn’t just my outlet, it’s my voice, it’s my passion. – William Bennett
At the heart of Shoreline Art’s Alliance’s mission to Transform Lives Through Arts is the belief that art is vital to healing individuals and societies as a whole. William Bennett, high school senior at Daniel Hand High School in Madison CT, exemplifies the capacity of art to heal and Transform Lives.
In 2017, William’s striking photography garnered him a $1,000 Shoreline Arts Alliance Top Talent scholarship and Mentorship award. Additionally, his evocative work was deemed worthy of Shoreline Art’s Alliances Future Choices Best in Show prize by a separate panel of judges. William’s photography demonstrates a maturity beyond his years and we are eager to see his continued development as an artist.
