Real-life moms and their kids share heartwarming stories in a new series of Hallmark commercials directed by Lauren Greenfield

Lauren Greenfield recently directed a series of Mother’s Day commercials for Hallmark featuring the stories of real-life moms and their kids. The campaign, called #PutYourHearttoPaper, follows Lauren’s award-winning directorial turn for Always with “Like a Girl,” which won Leo Burnett 11 awards at this year’s Webby Awards, including Webby’s Agency of the Year. (Read more about that at adage.com.)

“With Mother’s Day approaching, Hallmark embarked on a social experiment asking people to talk about their moms on camera and describe their feelings beyond the typical expressions of ‘I love you’ and ‘thank you,'” Hallmark explains at its official YouTube channel.

“They found that by removing those go-to phrases, the emotion behind the love for their mothers was revealed and they were better prepared to put their heart to paper on Mother’s Day. What they didn’t know was that their moms were watching from another room. The videos capture the heartwarming reactions the moms had to their children’s words.”

Guzman’s photos of Newark in the 1970s highlight the beauty, grit, and vibrant street life of a resilient city

In 1975, Connie Hansen signed on at Arts High School in Newark, New Jersey, to teach black-and-white photography. She had just graduated from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn and would soon embark on a successful commercial career as one half of the photo duo Guzman, with her husband, Russell Peacock. But in those early days, she focused on nurturing the curiosity of their young students, taking them out into the streets of Newark and encouraging them to view their surroundings with open eyes and an open mind. And in the process, Guzman produced a remarkable body of street photography all their own, which they recently revisited for Glitterati Incorporated‘s The Click.

“We had received an NEA grant to create a pamphlet with the students’ photographs and writings, and I wanted them to see what was around them,” Guzman tell Glitterati’s Sara Rosen, who last week published the essay “Guzman: Newark in the 1970s.”

“We walked where we wanted, and no one noticed us. We were completely invisible, and no one could care less about our cameras. I was teaching an incredible group of juniors and seniors. There was serious talent at the school. I was really young then, just a few years older than the students. You couldn’t tell that I was the teacher when I was with the class. I became friends with many of the students; they still call to this day. That class had a lifelong impact on us.”

Below, 25 of Guzman’s Newark images. To see and read more, visit The Click. And to see Guzman’s recent work, visit stocklandmartel.com/guzman.
