My life is not defined by being a photographer, nor can I claim it is who I am. It is, however, immensely important and therapeutic to me. With camera in hand and a worthy subject in front of me, I am what Buddhists might call "in the moment" or "present." Nothing else exists for me aside from the task at hand.
It is an experience I crave, and one I need for my well-being. Such a demand means there is a continual, if not somewhat sporadic, slew of new work to share.
