“To see life, to see the world, to witness great events....” This is what Henry R. Luce wrote in his 1936 prospectus for “Life” magazine. Every week, “Life” brought photographic narratives that captured the eye and imagination. “Life” also inspired my interest and passion for images and photographs. Every week, through pictures, I gained glimpses of people and places that peaked my curiosity. My first introduction to really great photography and photographers came from the pages Life's mostly black and white images.

This inspiration led me to a life long personal and professional connection to photography and imaging. As I look back on the photographs I’ve taken through the years, I have come to recognize them as mileposts or waypoints. These markers connect me to the influences, subjects and life episodes that have shaped the way I see and how I perceive life.
