Painted Faces Part 1

How many paintings have forgotten faces? Faces meticulously created by artists, only to be lost in the work as a whole. 

If great works of art are comprised of pieces of a whole, then each piece is essential. 

These faces say so much, hold so much meaning, but are forgotten and unrecognized.

The Mountain

As I walked down the the rocky slope, an old woman stopped us:

“It’s beautiful here, but sad. I hiked this path every year for twenty years, and I see the glaciers slowly disappear.”

The old woman walked off. My partner and I looked at each other.

We only knew the beauty of right now. I wondered what next year held when I would surely return.

Would I run into the woman again? Would she say the same thing? 

These experiences make me appreciate photography. It’s not just a way for me to share my world with others, but to document what my flawed memories cannot.
