And images of those intricate hearts made from vibrant sea glass are flowing back to schools and hospitals that have been hard hit by COVID-19 during the pandemic.

“The hearts hit a sweet spot for people,” Verger said. “People love sea glass, the color, the patterns.”

Across the country, many artists find themselves struggling during the pandemic, but they’re also finding ways to give back during a health crisis that has claimed more than 465,000 lives in the United States.

Verger’s efforts represent his small but colorful contribution to the effort to bring people a smile, or maybe a moment of calm and peace, amid the isolation of the pandemic.

He’s sent about 25,000 postcards of his hearts and landscape photography to schools and hospitals. He delivers them at

100 Smiles is a project by photographer Wei Huan and art director Li Bo, which sets out to examine the general shift in the perception of fashion over the last decade, particularly in China. Centred around the idea that fashion has evolved from being seen as a serious, impenetrable scene to one where the expression of emotion is embraced, the duo were keen to break away from typical, straight-faced portrait photography and reveal the new positive energy of cultures and communities on the streets of Shanghai

While this is excellent in theory, asking 100 people to step outside of their comfort zones, become vulnerable and smile candidly down the lens, is not without its challenges.
