I grew up in the land of sunshine, warm-blooded and barefooted. We only had one real season and it rarely invited long sleeves. As a kid I would dream of sitting by fireplaces in warm fuzzy sweaters like they do in the movies. In reality I could hardly stand to enjoy a bonfire any night of the year without suffering from heat exhaustion. Now, decades later, I find myself in awe of seasonal shifts as I eagerly attempt to capture the parts that pull strongest at those childhood longings. I stand outside and let my lungs fill to their deepest depths with the coldest air I have ever tasted. I exhale only to do it all over again.
One of my images was included in Group Show 60: Winter Pictures through the Humble Arts Foundation in NYC. This is a wonderful collection of imagery depicting winter in its many forms. Please take a moment to appreciate the work of the numerous photographers.
