HOW DID THIS START?
I can't exactly recall when I first started taking pictures, but the vivid smell of darkroom chemicals from the days of summer camp are forever seared into my sensory panel. Those lazy afternoons transitioned to a photography course in college where I used my father's old 35mm camera, and, like many photographers, I distinctly remember that moment when things clicked and I realized that the same subject, shot in different angles, lighting, focal length and depth of field could convey entirely different emotions.
What I love about photography is that fractional slivers of transient time become permanent, and that permanency allows for deep storytelling. The best photographs tell stories that are understood by all, spanning age, language race and religion and allow for introspection and reflection.
