Sharing that special moment.
Affinity. Closeness. Longing for connection. These shared experiences are what elevate our lives beyond mere existence. Good or bad, they are the muse for poetry, the rhythm of music, and the ‘heart’ in our heart. This body of work is about exploring just that: our humanity seen through how we connect with something outside ourselves. That moment when we bare our souls and open our hearts.
Sharing that special moment.
Peter & Krystal, Maine, 2017
Peter, a local farmer and Krystal, an out of towner in Rockport, Maine, treasure the real, the authentic, the unpretentious.
Scott starts work at 3am at the lobster docks in Maine. I'm pretty sure it's his rapport with his workmates that he enjoys most of all.

In the Hasidic neighbourhood where I live, family and community are treasured. Most of it is behind closed doors. These ladies are out for a walk on the Sabbath and admire each others babies as they pass on the sidewalk.
In the Hasidic area of Williamsburg, Brooklyn tradition and devotion bind the community, preserving their lifestyle..
