Excerpt from a piece written for the Dallas Center of Photography
I now think about my photos differently. I appreciate my catalog - mind you, not every picture is a gem. They do, however, represent my chronology in growth and purpose with each photograph a memory of moments passed, lessons learned, emotions expressed. Through them, I honor the people who have crossed my photographic path and enlightened my life. I have spent nearly a decade learning from Peter Poulides of the Dallas Center for Photography, and I can no longer flippantly disregard the importance of this achievement and my long-standing relationship with the photographs he taught me to make.
