Please join MusiCares and inspirational photographer and author of the acclaimed Through A Sober Lens: A Photographer’s Journey, Michael Blanchard for a discussion on Post Traumatic Growth - a positive change experienced as a result of the struggle with a major life crisis or a traumatic event. The discussion will focus on stories that exemplify how human beings can be changed by their encounters with life challenges, sometimes in radically positive ways. Michael also talks of his personal journey shaped by saying “Yes” to synchronicity rather than “No” and how it influenced such an improbable outcome. He will discuss how photography and the arts serve as a means of spiritual connection and bringing individuals out of isolation in helping overcome the disease of addiction.

MEET OUR PANELIST:

Michael Blanchard’s unexpected journey occurred after 4 DUI’s, a suicide attempt and over 3 months in both a psychiatric hospital and rehab facility. He transformed himself into an acclaimed photographer, writer, and philanthropist from his previous life as the COO of a large company. His book “Through A Sober Lens” won the Ben Franklin Award as most inscriptional story, and he has been called “The Ansel Adams of the Recovery World” by Recovery Today Magazine. He has is MA in Psychology with a focus on substance use disorder and has pioneered the use imagery and the arts in healing.
