This was probably my most difficult photo set to do, yet. I decided that I wanted to photograph people that I felt a very intimate connection with, and Joe came to mind. This is Joe. I photographed him in details that make him unique to me, and I think the emotion that poured out was inevitable.
We decided to part ways in June. I still feel more connected to him spiritually than anyone else I have memory of. He helped me grow in a very important time in my life, and I am grateful for that. I am grateful to have met him. Joe is a beautiful soul, and I hope that life will grant him all the good that he gives away.
