Unseen Encore photos we just have to share

One of the things Encore has become known for is its beautiful photography capturing life in Southwest Michigan. We take so many images for our stories and are often dismayed when we can’t share them all with our readers. So, in this, our fifth annual Revealed issue, we share the images that Encore staff loved but that we weren’t able to print with the stories they were taken for. And for good measure, we throw in a few other images from our community captured by photographer Brian K. Powers. We think you’ll agree that these images are just too good not to share.

Brian Powers

Brian grew up in Kalamazoo but says he’s realized it’s not as small a town as some would paint it. “I am always meeting new people through my work, and it amazes me just how many people I don’t know even though I’ve lived here for most of my life,” he says. “I learn something new about this community every day.” In addition to taking photos for Encore, Brian shoots for clients that include Hour Media, Bronson Healthcare and the University of Michigan.
