The Front Yard Project
Capturing some outside fun – yard by yard – while doing some good for South Jersey
By Photography by David Michael Howarth

Look out the window…SJ Magazine’s longtime photographer David Michael Howarth may be scoping out your
front yard – at a safe distance of course. But don’t worry, it’s for a great cause.

Howarth joined the national #frontyardproject, and we’re so proud of (and impressed with) his work. He put out a call last month for families who would like to be photographed in their front yards. Only payment would be a donation to Camden’s Cathedral Kitchen. At the time of printing, he had raised more than $4,000.

And oh, what fun it was. Families came out for their photo shoots dressed in their quarantine stir-crazy best. We can’t get over the creativity. The effort. The joy. In every photo, you can see how we made it through a pretty crazy time. By sticking together.
