It Feels Like Forever

Every photographer was drawn to the initial clicks by some unknown force. Some photographers were able to go down that faint trail until it widened to a path. 

I come from a very vocational family, and the pathway to photography was an itch that wouldn't go away and no one around me knew how to foster. I was pushed to college and a practical life. I'd love to say I fought for my art and was successful in spite of the odds.  

That didn't happen.  The path faded.

Everything Is New...

Years passed and I focused on earning a living. I found myself drawn back into shooting pictures with the introduction of digital cameras.  Curiosity led me back to film.  35mm and medium format offer different emotional approach to the medium and the lenses that were once ubiquitous offer newly unique perspectives. 
The thing that I love most, however, is the way photography has expanded to include so many people.  The "democratization of photography" is one way to describe it.  I think of it more as new conversations about the world using the visual language.  A thousand words a thousand times over, we share broader conversations.  That's why I love sharing my photography and shooting along side others.    Let me know how I can share this conversation with you!
