People all around the Fargo-Moorhead area began changing the white light bulbs outside their homes and apartments to blue light bulbs. All to honor the memory of Fargo Police Office Jason Moszer who was killed in the line of duty on February 11, 2016.
What inspired me was that even weeks following the funeral, neighborhoods continued to switch on their blue porch lights night-after-night. As an artist, I was intrigued by how each light cast a different glow on the doors and porches because of the home’s unique architecture. I wanted to capture this spirit of the community.
So for several nights, I took my camera and tripod and photographed the various blue-lighted homes at night and created my collage called “Porch Lights for Protectors.” While the lights may cast different shades of blue, the support from the community continues to shine into the night.
