I'm in my second week as an Artist-in-Residence at our middle school and it has me thinking a lot about my work and photography in general. I've shared a quick history of photography with the students, talked about the rules of photography and the tools needed to make a photograph, and also the power of a photograph. Photos tell a story, much like a video or a book. They can stir up emotions and quickly return us to a time we treasure. They can provide raw truths, false positives and sacred reality, whether it be for us to share or pack away for safe keeping.
Last summer, I had the honor of traveling to Eagle River to document Jared & Kari's story and the start of their new adventure.
