I picked up a camera for the first time while quite young. I remember being startled by grandpa’s film camera’s automatic rewind, inexplicably opening the camera body, and ruining the memory of a whole day’s worth of travels. I was still young enough to use naiveness as a shield then.
Due to the nature of the one who captures images, photos of me and my camera together are exceedingly rare. One of the earliest images I still have at hand is the following, taken in 2009 in San Mateo, California. Today is not explicitly the anniversary of anything, I just use it to acknowledge the roots of my effort – to absorb photons and tell their stories.
