If Liberty were placed in a box, she would still shine through. That’s what my photo aims to represent.
I took the image of this miniature replica at the museum inside the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty in Liberty Island, New York. A lot more can be learned about the history and construction of the monumental icon of freedom through the displays in the exhibit. Though I’m not American, I felt moved by what I saw as anyone who understands the meaning of freedom would.
Freedom means the opportunity to be what we never thought we would be. – Daniel J. Boorstin
Freedom is the open window through which pours the sunlight of the human spirit and human dignity. – Herbert Hoover
