Close-Ups of Children from Far Away

“These people live again in print as intensely

as when their images were captured on old, dry plates of sixty years ago.

I am walking in their alleys, standing in their rooms and sheds and workshops,

looking in and out of their windows.

And they, in turn, seem to be aware of me.”

-Ansel Adams-

journal entry:

As I look back at photographs of this face from the time of his birth until today . . . I can see that the same gifts are at work.  He remains a kind and tenderhearted boy.  A grateful boy.  One who is quick to help and quick to say “I’m sorry”.  He is a thoughtful boy.  A peacemaker.  Creative.  Inquisitive. Patient. Quick to lend a helping hand.  A hard worker.  That is the joy of capturing in photographs, not just the faces, but the spirits of children.


“Your imagination is your preview of life’s coming attractions.”

-Albert Einstein-
