During a pandemic, photography becomes an important, comforting thing. While we are self-isolating, viewing images of the world and people outside our four walls can give us a sense of comfort and familiarity. That’s why this year’s Revealed issue not only features beautiful images taken for Encore stories that didn’t make it into print, but other eye-catching photos of Southwest Michigan captured by our talented photographer Brian K. Powers as well. From his poignant “Porch Portraits” and breathtaking landscapes to photos that capture the beauty of everyday things, we hope these images invoke a sense of love and gratitude for the uniqueness of the people, places and things that make up this wonderful corner of Michigan we call home.
