A sea captain who untangles whales. A lawyer who supports mothers in need. A woman who offers comfort to those suffering from loss and despair. A boy who sells rubber ducks to save abandoned animals. These are just some of the Local Heroes of 2022, who were also photographed in black and white by the expert lens of Ingrid Bostrom.
