"Words and pictures can work together to communicate more powerfully than either alone."  William Albert Allard

Photography gives us a unique way to visually tell a story.  It provides a context, perspective and an array of details that gives us a unique take on our world.  Writing also tells a story by having every word evoke a particular facet of that story.  When photography and writing are brought together, we are able to create a richer, more complete story that we can share with the world.  

A camera is just a mechanical device.  It is the person behind the camera that creates an image that you will remember and be remembered by. It creates a stage for how we see ourselves and for how other people see us.  It our stamp, our brand.  A pen or keyboard is also just a mechanical device as well.  We bring both into play to make images and stories that take what is on the inside of the skin and bring it to the outside.
