I believe that a good photograph is the result of a life well-lived. It’s about how you love and live. It’s about the music you listen to, the books you read and the art that not only you make but also the art you take the time to understand and appreciate. It’s about the friends you have, the generosity you share and how (if!) you find a way to pay it forward. I could go on and on . . .
Sculptor and MacArthur Genius Teresita Fernández said it best, “Being an artist is not just about what happens when you are in the studio. The way you live, the people you choose to love and the way you love them, the way you vote, the words that come out of your mouth, the size of the world you make for yourselves, your ability to influence the things you believe in, your obsessions, your failures — all of these components will also become the raw material for the art you make.”
