They say a photo is worth a thousand words. They are wrong.
A photo is ten thousand prayers. A photo is one million hopes. A photo is a story told and untold, a belief, a promise, a passion and a responsibility. A photo is a mirror of the human soul that transcends all barriers of communication. And a photo does not lie.
This is how I see. This is why I shoot. And I will not close my eyes and smile.
On Christmas of 2007 I sat across from my grandfather, William Quinn as my mother showed him photograph's I had taken over the year. He looked up at me and said, "Your eyes were made to see." It was one of the greatest gifts ever given to me, and a moment I will remember for the rest of my life.
