If you think that creatives can't have widespread positive influence in Tulsa, Evan Taylor is here to prove you wrong. Huglahoma was born when Evan, a local photographer, decided, "enough negativity, more hugs".
Armed with his camera, and membership to Fab Lab, he's changing things and is making a difference. Evan travels around with a board in the shape of good ol' OK and takes portraits of people hugging (or in some cases, sheepishly holding) the state of Oklahoma. All the while, Evan campaigns for positivity by positing the photos and the subject's description of why they love Oklahoma on Huglahoma's Facebook Page. We've included a sampling of photos below, but be sure to check out the facebook page for the full rundown (highlights include Biker Fox, that QT guy everyone knows, and this guy)
