The idea of doing a story based on images that focused on merging worlds was challenging in many ways. First and most importantly is the fact that every person has a unique way of seeing the world as well as interpreting words and concepts in ways that are profound to each individual. In addition, I thought that it would be incredibly complicated to then select images that were intriguing pieces of a puzzle, a visual narrative that collectively related a compelling story of the human experience on earth. Lastly, to capture timelessness is like taking a photograph of a dream, and so fitting for this assignment titled The Sacred Landscape.
I find beauty in every one of the 10 thousand plus images that were submitted for this assignment. They draw me in, I am curious to learn more, to know why, to feel the light and the wind, to listen to their sound, I am captured. My first impression upon looking at the diversity was one of being humbled by the talent of our community. A warm appreciation to all of you, I’m inspired by your work.
