Everything that could possible happen between people happens during photography. It’s cool to see life thru a lens and play out on that stage over and over again. For me photography is a chance to peek in the human condition a little bit and see what makes people human and too see what makes them tick. It could be love, hate, stress, fear or anything for that matter but I have seen it through photography. I love it and I have to see that real burn out. If I saw photography as a job then I would get burnt out. I love to see a different way on how to understand people and even the relationships between people. Seeing so much beauty, emotion and action in photography made me open my eyes. Every day and ever place I walk I see something I can capture with a camera. I am always making notes and creating my own Rolodex of ideas. When I photograph, I document life happening before my eyes. It’s dynamic, fluid, and I must react to what’s happening before me to capture its essence. I love the problem solving and the hunt that comes along with photography.

Mostrati a me ...

Who are you moon-
half closed with your skull cap and
alabaster skin looking down on me with your condescending stare,
like you know me?
like you know my pain?
spinning like an ornament,
on that outstretched branch that is our galaxy
like you know me…?

Who are you moon—
disappearing when I need you most,
I can still see you hiding out in your outpost,
pulling the blankets over your head
so you don’t have to look at the living or the dead..
can’t you see your phases
are like turnings in mazes
never escaping,
never relating,
smiling at us with that luminescent mouth,
causing craziness,
tossing about our water
baptizing the earth,
when all we need is your light
in the wrinkles of our fingers so that when we pray
we can feel the cool spray of you moon;

who are you moon?
when will you be back?
I want you to acknowledge
this face, this place, this now,
cause tomorrow you’ll be different,
I know you won’t look at me the same.
