Considering the natural emotional complexities of those within the arts community, the description is a phenomenal compliment, maybe even the best a photographer could receive. Each of the artists' portraits will be complemented by a piece of their own work as well. Russell Jacques, the famous sculptor and painter, said of Akers' portrait of him that "It is one of the best photos ever of me." Along with Jacques, other artists in the exhibition include Ron Azevedo, Marlo Bartels, Paul Bond, Antje Campbell, Susan Jarecky, Christopher Jefferies, Murray Kruger, Tom Swimm, Hannah Harris and Rachel Young.
