Depth of Field: MetroParks at the MAC

Frame

I had no idea that last June, when I took a serendipitous drive to a park to take some shots of the sunset, that it would change the course of my work this year. On a whim I submitted this photograph to a juried exhibition late last year and this January I found out that my photograph was selected. Ecstatic that I got in, I also immediately started to take stock of what the heck I was going to do with all these photographs that I take and maybe it just felt like the right time to go full tilt.

Over the years I haven’t done anything with them. Mostly out of a lack of confidence, a lack of time or money to invest, or personal derailments, I’ve never really valued my art. And maybe all it took was one photograph to be discovered or to change my perspective.

Sometimes my passion is writing, sometimes it’s making paper, sometimes it’s crafts, sometimes it’s working with animals, but over the years I have always come back to photography. And there must be a reason for that.
