Every image in this book already has another life as a large scale print, but the title equally refers to my choice of creative outlet. I pursued visual art from a young age, focussed on it through high school where I also took photography and darkroom classes, and continued onto graphic design in college. Dad had a darkroom in our apartment in Czech before we escaped, and I took over his 35mm even before those classes. Enthusiasm turned to compulsion when Nicole gave me my first DSRL, the results of which you see here. Photography is among the things that is always growing in importance to me.
