Connections: Everyone Has a Story to Tell
This book celebrates the universal search for meaning—how we pursue our passions on our way to solving the puzzle of who we are. Connections takes readers into the thick blue smoke of a forge where a bearded blacksmith hammers red-hot iron into artwork. It introduces them to a young man, long overdue for a bath, who is hiking the Pacific Crest Trail in order to find himself. Connections is about love, collaboration and giving purpose to our lives. Our DNA has wired us to seek relationships. Deny anyone contact and it’s the surest way to destroy them. It is the genius of nature’s nectar—her design to ensure the survival of our species. From the author: “My connection with others often occurs when I take their portraits. I photograph people to celebrate them as pieces of art. My camera gives me access to a unique intimacy. An effective portrait is a mover of emotions that brings us closer and I’m honored to be able to contribute to that.”
