Words + Images = Message

It has always amazed me how little respect written words and images receive.

It has been words on paper that govern countries with declarations, constitutions and treaties. It has defined love with affectionate letters, marriage certificates and at times, divorce papers. And it shaped us as individuals through our education and retelling of our histories.

Photos recount details that fill the holes of the story. They tell the story for those that were not there and remind those that were.

Putting the two together becomes a balance so that one doesn't out weight the other.

I want to perfect that balance through my talents of photography, graphic design and writing.
