Bring your work to life. I mentioned earlier the importance of projects in pushing your boundaries and learning new skills. There is nothing better than seeing your work bigger than life and to touch it. The excitement I get seeing a piece printed – whether a print or a book – gives me goose bumps EVERY time. To make it even better – giving it to someone is a personal expression of an experience shared.
I collected all the photographs from my trips and have made treasures for friends and loved ones. Most dear to me is the book from the Alaska tour with my Dad. He passed away this year but I have but to look at the book to be back in that cabin aboard the Silversea with him. I know he is not here for us to turn pages together as we did when I was young. That makes me sad – the book helps transcend that.
Photography has helped me capture meaning in my life.
