A look back at 2014, Part 1

The time between Christmas and New Year’s is a perfect one to look back on the year that is coming to an end, and to marvel at its wonders and joys, as well as to reflect on its challenges and bittersweet moments. They’re all part of the great mystery of life…

I thought I’d go back through my images to select some that are meaningful to me. These are not necessarily my best, but they do resonate with me and represent a year full of wonderfully rich memories.

I’ve preserved these images in photobooks and archives for the future. I’m grateful to have them and be able to look at them any time I want to bring back so many days and moments in all their glorious colour and intensity.

But there are many more moments and memories from this past year that I don’t have pictures of. I am just as thankful for the ones that remain alive only in my mind’s eye.
