"There are stories hidden in the language we use, whether we're conscious of them or not. They tell the truth of our hearts and minds" - Taken from Brave Enough by Cheryl Strayed
The language I choose is photography. For me photography is constantly changing the way we view the life around us. During the time that I took the photos below I was discovering who I was as a photographer and learning how to feel comfortable photographing the stories of others. All of the photos were shot in Colorado and many of them were shot on the 16th Street Mall. Some were on film and others were the very beginning of me shooting digital which was many years ago. One belief that has stayed consistent throughout my time as a photographer is that every persons story deserves to be told. Many of my portfolio shots are representative of that belief. I love photographing people who rarely or never are photographed.
Let the images speak for themselves.
It's not about competing it's about capturing.
There's beauty in each moment.
We are all human.
