These portraits were created to accompany a series of interviews for theEditorial.com, which celebrate the lives of women and men who possess the keen insight into how they might make a difference. They work daily making steps that bring them closer to their dream, whether it is improving our health care systems, designing beautiful buildings, or advocating for global medicine for those suffering from war and abuse. They include restaurant owners and chefs, who inspire us with food made with ingredients from our local farms. They are artists, writers, theater directors, and curators, who reflect the changes in our culture, and challenge us to think beyond our preconceived notions. They are ideological pioneers and game changers. In short, they inspire us.
