A huge thank you to Darius Bashar for capturing me one winter afternoon. His intense dedication to his work and craft is nothing short of admirable. If I could have an once of that ongoing mental conversation on a day to day basis…well…I could only imagine what one could be capable of.

There is no right or wrong in photography. Everyone has their own aesthetic sensibilities and taste. This can be a frustrating discovery, but it can also be a liberating one. The human brain seeks closure. The human heart seeks certainty and conviction. But the soul is wiser than both. It transcends binary human constructs such as right and wrong. When I realized both Gloria and I could be “right”, I had to also accept that there is no objectively perfect photograph. At that moment I felt untethered and free. The feeling was fleeting, but it planted a seed inside me. It made me realize that trying to get to a place, where everyone felt the same way about my work, is a terrible trajectory. I can’t control any of that. So now, I had to find a better plan – one that relied less on the external world.
