Anjali Pinto — What Grieving Teaches Us About the Human Story

About This Episode

Anjali Pinto is a professional photographer, artist, and writer who met her husband, Jacob, when she was young. They fell in love and shared their beautiful story consistently on Instagram.

Jacob died suddenly at age 30 — out of the blue and with no warning. In her grief, Anjali didn’t turn inward. She turned to Instagram. Over the course of the past year and a half, those Instagram posts—one a day, every day—have become a kind of documentary project: a tribute to Jacob and an unfolding of Pinto’s grief. Anjali garnered the attention of more than 50,000 followers and eventually hosted an art show dedicated to memorializing the life of Jacob that made a profound impact on its viewers.

Currently, she lives in Chicago and shares a photo studio with creative and supportive women — having the privilege of photographing projects that fall somewhere in the categories of personal, editorial or commercial.

In this conversation, Branden and Anjali move deep inside her story of loss and grief — and ultimately, how publicly grieving has revealed the nuanced, complicated beauty of humanity.

“I have screamed for recognition that he was special, but it was in the silence that I found it.”

— Anjali Pinto
