We sometimes work as photographers at being consistant, at showing the same thing the same way again and again, that is not what interests me. Â It is safe, and it isÂ accessibleÂ but it is not what I love. Â I love working with seniors to show something about who they are, their quiet moments or their louder moments. Â Where they are at in this moment, because this moment is never going to happen again. Â Each young woman or young man I photograph has their own ideas of who they are, where they have been and where they are going and if I can help them express those things, even just a little bit, then I am doing what I set out to do.
â€œThe mind I love most must have wild places, a tangled orchard where dark damsons drop in the heavy grass, an overgrown little wood, the chance of a snake or two, a pool that nobody fathomed the depth of, and paths threaded with flowers planted by the mind.â€
â€•Â Katherine Mansfield,
