I had planned to write this post about a week ago (maybe
four five weeks now?), but it had proven to be more difficult to put into words than I had thought. I’m not the best with words. If you knew me personally you would probably chuckle and nod your head in agreement at that statement.
After going over and over what it is I want to say, I will simply say this: I never thought I would have so much fun working with a crew of people in the studio. Photography can be such a lonely art form, and Kimberly inspired a collaboration that felt more like a ‘dream team’ sport. I’m pretty sure we could conquer the world if given the chance and proper tabletop. I’ve learned a great deal from her over the past few months, and she has inspired me to grow in directions I didn’t know I could even sprout.
Movement is happening, people. So are shadows. It’s a beautiful thing.

As I had mentioned in my last blog entry… I was headed to Oaxaca, Mexico for two weeks in July.
Well, I’m back now, and I will say this – my experience was good, INTENSE, but good.
A group of us went on this delegation with an organization called, Witness for Peace, where we focused on the topic of migration. A very deep and unmistakably raw point of interest that has so many layers it’s hard to piece them all together. I am working on a more in-depth, long-winded post about the trip on my Sustainable Plate blog that I encourage you all to read (I hope to have it up in the next few days – it has been incredibly difficult to write).
But for now, I’ll go ahead and share some of my favorite images from the trip:
