Last year, I was lucky enough to be awarded a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council to do portraits of Seniors and combine their images with their words of experience. Walker Methodist in was my first location.
At the beginning of a project you are working out the kinks and deciding on technique and image treatment. (I also need to add the words to the images) We are also doing video capture and obtaining some beautiful, thoughtful words.
These images are those that I will send to the models to thank them for helping and taking their time.
More to come...

A shot between the shots I was doing while on assignment for Hennepin County Medical Center. It is my idea of capturing a winter scene. (shot through a window while I was standing in a comfortable 70º room.).
During the cold here in Minnesota, I often see things I want to shoot although the frigidity, which chills me to the inner-core, prevents me from escaping the warmth of my existing environment to capture them.

Vlad Spector was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma when he was 14 years old. He is now 21 and doing very well. To go through what he did at such a young age is a gross injustice. His view of life and what it has to offer is clear and transparent. He reminds those around him of what really is important. (shot for the Minnesota Medical Foundation)

Inspiration can come from many things. People...places...things...or a combination. Right now I am feeling particularly inspired and find it easy and fun to take pictures, which is how it should be. When this is happening, I try not to evaluate it's source but to just go with it...knowing it will not last forever.
