Photographer John Raymond Mireles photographs people up-close, full of character and larger-than-life.

Mireles travels from state to state capturing in his portraits the faces of America. By documenting communities, he highlights the individuals who make up our national identity, reminding us what it means to be a good neighbor—to help each other feel welcome, safe and recognized.

In 2017, Mireles photographed people of Anchorage in neighborhoods throughout the city. This exhibition includes images from that project.
