Once upon a time, when wheels were made of stone and phones were wired, lived my grandma. I loved my grandma and loved her stories about people and places she remembered. There was one story about a photographer. There was no name, just a guy who could make any woman look beautiful with his camera. I envied him. I wanted to be this guy. I wanted my grandma to say that about me some day.
A lot of time has passed. I’ve travelled the world, changed jobs and cameras, taken pictures of unbelievable people, places, and things. But through all the life’s journeys I am in pursuit of beauty. I want to hear some day: “He can make anybody beautiful with his camera”.
