As a writer and editor in my former (25+ year) career, it surprised many when I gave up writing in favor of photography. Those who knew me well, however, saw it as a natural extension of my story-telling tradition.
I find storytelling through imagery extremely gratifying. Instead of moving words around on paper, I shuffle 4x6 images around the walls until I get things right. These images are part of a larger series, but for now, speak to me individually as well as part of a group. Thank you for the opportunity to submit them to the Emerging Talent Awards.
