Learn MoreAbout the Project

The Faces to Remember Project is about preserving and sharing the histories of people whose stories need to be told. Northeast Florida-based photographer Agnes Lopez has made it her mission to tell these stories.

Lopez had the honor of meeting and photographing Holocaust survivors on the First Coast, and the resulting portraits inspired her to continue the project and expand it further.

Being of Filipino descent but only recently discovering the depth of the contributions and sacrifices of the 260,000 Filipino soldiers in the U.S. armed forces in the Pacific theater of World War II — and finding out that this part of history is largely unknown — Agnes Lopez intends to photograph the veterans she can locate. With an estimated 15,000 of these veterans remaining there isn't much time left to document their valor.
