On Solitude and Social Media

On Solitude and Social Media

As human beings, it has long been said that each is a product of his environment. Sounds legit. But it really isn’t.

Is the Future Here Already?

I am frequently asked this question: “What is it that you do, exactly?” It is actually a pretty fair ask, though I am never quite sure what to tell people. I am involved in a lot of rather unique trades and projects. One of the things is that I operate camera as a specialty cameraContinue Reading
