By profession, I am a pathologist who observes daily the microscopic wonders of diagnosing human disease. This training has made me keenly aware of the visual aspects of our world. Photography fits perfectly with this visual view of the world. This year I have been inspired by a photography mentorship with Alison Shaw, who is based on Martha's Vineyard. She has motivated me to improve my photography and work on my project that seeks to convey the beauty of the woods in my neighborhood through my own visual lens.
