Using her passion, imagination and fierce courage, Jacksonville, Florida native Tiffany Manning stepped out to create her life as a portrait photographer and painter. Although her creativity is well-recognized, in 2019, she received generous support from The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida, allowing her 19-year vision to become a reality — The Feminine Soul Project. The Feminine Soul Project’s power lies in the ability to create compassionate connections. It shares the stories of 100 local women — beginning with 100 Jacksonville, Florida women. Oversized black and white photographs and audio sharing the voices of these women guide viewers on a spiritual journey of connection and relatedness. With its impact now rippling far beyond Jacksonville, Art Prize in Grand Rapids, Michigan has the privilege of sharing The Feminine Soul Project from September 16 - October 3, 2021 featuring their own local women photographed and interviewed by Tiffany. Unifying communities? Tiffany would say the privilege is all hers.
The vision for the audio-visual experience of The Feminine Soul Project started back in 2002. After receiving generous support from The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida, Tiffany Mannings’ 19-year vision became a reality — The Feminine Soul Project and its intention to unify communities is now gaining the interest of cities nationwide. Next stop — Grand Rapids, Michigan from September 16 - October 3, 2021 at ArtPrize, an independently organized international art competition expecting half a million visitors. This courageous portrait artist has depth, heart, and courage and is causing a ripple effect to connect and relate.
Images show women’s faces. Voices share their stories. Only you don’t know who’s speaking. (Completely transformational! I promise.) Be guided on a spiritual journey of connectedness through the Feminine Soul Project — changing a city near you.
