What Drives Me to Photograph People? Part 2

Yesterday Connie told why she photographs people. Today, Joshua does.

 

Mirror, MirrorMirror, MirrorBride's anticipation just before wedding.

As far back as I can remember, I’ve always been a storyteller. From the imagination of my childhood to the short stories I wrote in high school, I’ve always been intrigued by stories around me. As I learned the art of photography from my grandfather and mother I realized I could use the camera to tell stories.

A favorite picture I captured is a bride looking at her reflection in a mirror. Her expression in those last few moments before the ceremony tells a hundred stories to a hundred people. The goal of my photographs is for people to see a story in their mind, whether it is the actual story or one created from their own experience.
