I took my interns to the gallery to look at an exhibit that was up at the time. As we left the gallery and walked toward my car we talked about the show and what it meant to us. One of my interns was describing how it moved her when a guy walked past us at a faster pace. In that moment I saw an image that caught me by surprise. The guy who walked past us wore a simple white t-shirt, but in the middle of his back was a red circle. To my interns it didn't register, but to me I knew it was his way of saying I support Japan. I quickly caught up with the guy and asked him where he got his t-shirt and he said he'd gone to an event to raise money for Japan and purchased it there. The t-shirt was so simple but also so powerful and for the rest of the day the image of his t-shirt stayed with me and I decided to do an image inspired by that moment.
We never know when something will come along and inspire us, so we must always be aware of life around us. Regardless of the type of photography you shoot take the time to put your life, and how you feel about life, in your images.
Always Dream Big!
