I often find myself deeply moved by the writings of photographers I admire, as well as their photography. I copied this quote from Kim Manley Ort, photographer, teacher, writer and fellow explorer, when I read it, and I wanted to share it with others, who I think will also appreciate it.
My mission in life is to fully experience and embrace life with my whole self – mind, body, and heart – to really see. I’ve found that photography helps me to do this through fully connecting with and being transformed by ordinary moments. Something universal resonates deep inside – and I feel tender, hopeful, transparent, connected, and present. It is magical and opens me up to how everything (including me) belongs. I hope that when others look at my photography, they see that every moment is worthy in and of itself.
