Photography, for me, all started as I was growing up. I didn't have a camera, I didn't have anyone in my family that was a photographer. What I had was a mom who would take me to the to the library. There I was able to look, explore, and imagine (I know, sounds like a public service message) different worlds and events through pictures found in Life and National Geographic magazines. Doesn't sound like much, but when you don't have much, it's everything!
