a collection of past works
In ’97 while I was in Spain, I had the absolute privilege of taking photographs for a school dedicated to youth with special needs… experiencing the extraordinary work of the teachers and carers that helped with the habilitation of these most beautiful and intuitive individuals.
Some were shy at first, but in no time at all became accustomed to my camera. They had the strongest resilience and determination to learn their tasks despite whatever their struggles may have been. It touched me so deeply getting to know these beautiful souls, seeing the sparkle in their eyes and their faces light up with joy.
We are all connected and every person we meet teaches us something valuable to help guide us on our journey in life… They taught me the importance of finding love in every moment, no matter how difficult or challenging.
