After 17 years, I still find photography and the art of light fascinating and the best schooling in life that I received is being among my friends that I have met over the years. Especially, those who have inspired me to continue with my passion and not giving up on what makes me happy. ------------------------------------------------------ Born in 1974, raised in Chicago and schooled by life and friends. I grew up in a very diverse neighborhood. I focus on creating art that I feel depicts what is interesting and beautiful. --------------------------------------------------------------- Over the years I have been blessed to be able to venture around the world and meet some of the greatest people in my travels (some I call close friends) and see some of the most amazing things with my own eyes, that each day I am inspired to continue with this adventure. ------------------------------------------------- From violence to love, victim to statistic and life to death. Life throws these roadblocks and the things we learn from them are quite weird. PHOTOGRAPHY, in essence has been my savior and has become more than F-stops and light meters. It's about capturing a moment and finding what is beautiful from big to small. Capturing not only what lies in front of the camera, but eluding to deeper meaning. ------------------------------------------------------ With that said, safe journey to everyone......and never stop taking photos.

Un bello lugar que a pesar de haber ido tanto a Sevilla, no he conocido! 22/5--AnaM ( si fue un largo y bello recorrido, no has pasado por la foto que te dediqué por no haber podido entrar en los Picos de Europa!)
