Without you I am nothing

Without you I am nothing

When this lady looked back at me from the screen for the first time, I put my pen down and just sat and watched her for a few minutes.

“What are you trying to tell me?”, I asked out loud and my wife came over to see who I was talking to.

“Wow”, she said and we just sat there for a while, looking at her.

She sparked a discussion at home about aging, beauty ideals and our culture’s fixation with youth.

“This is the work I want to exhibit”, I said to Sarah. We’ve taken the first steps towards that, but I haven’t shown any of the work from this series yet.

I’ve been surrounded by strong women my whole life, I was brought up by one, I’m married to one, so I’ve always been drawn to portraying independent women, both in my photography, AI work and other mediums.

Happy International Women’s Day.

Without you I am nothing.
