A Need To Make Photographs
Why do I feel a need to make photographs? I always have. And it’s hard to put it into words. It feels so important to me . . . to preserve the essence of something happening now in a way that thrills, to spark our memories later, to show future generations who we are, what and who we love. This week, a tragic fire struck a family that I know from having photographed their dog Santiago (above), for The Unexpected Pit Bull 2014 Calendar. The fire took the lives of six of their precious dogs.
Erich & SantiagoThe day before Thanksgiving, I went down to Millbrook to help look for their dog Betty who had been missing since the fire– 2 nights and a day. Thank goodness she showed around 1pm, right at the house.

My heart goes out to Erich & Kara–such a devastating loss.
