Life Advice and Photos of 1,000 Strangers From 48 States

Mar 12, 2024

10:00am – 11:00am CT

By driving over 15,000 miles in the span of 84 days in 2022, artist and storyteller Imran Nuri went searching for the meaning of life by asking 1,000 strangers across the lower 48 US states about what they wished they had known earlier. In other words, he asked them for life advice, and he photographed each of them on a 50-year-old film camera. This session presents Imran's journey across America and the findings of 1,000 pieces of advice from strangers to show what Americans believe to be true about making the most of life.
