“Dean took out other pictures. I realized these were all the snapshots which our children
would look at someday with wonder, thinking their parents had lived smooth, well-ordered,
estabilished-within-the-photo lives and got up in the morning to walk proudly on the
sidewalks of life, never dreaming the raggedy madness and riot of our actual lives, our
actual night, the hell of it, the senseless nightmare road. All of it inside endless and
beginningless emptiness. Pitiful forms of ignorance.”
- Jack Kerouac

Q: What are your favorite things to take pictures of?

A: Friends, always friends. It has always been my intention to get a good picture of
everyone that's worth remembering, so when my mind is shot to death, I still have a
memory of all this. People having fun, I guess, in water and on grass and big skies, I've
never been fussy about whether an image is snapshotty, it's just nice seeing people
enjoy themselves. I'm simple like that.

Your fingers upon my back connecting the dots. Drinking tea out of the freckled cup and
waiting for you to come back home. Waiting for there to be a home outside of this one.
Keeping warm under white sheets. Wanting to be closer then science will allow us.
