Unseen Encore photos from 2023

While our writers beautifully capture the aspects of our community in words, it is the images created for Encore by photographer Brian K. Powers that illuminate those stories. Many times when he’s on assignment, Brian will take more images than can be used in the magazine. It can be difficult to choose among the images that could accompany a story, and we feel a little sad when we leave out some of his amazing ones. But we are determined to give them their time to shine through our annual Revealed issue, where we share images that Encore staffers loved but that didn’t make it into print until now. As you peruse this issue, we hope it’ll recall for you the people and places we’ve featured during 2023.

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.
