Winning contests or being awarded a magazine cover or even having my “hobby” become self-sustaining is not what I want for my images. I do wish with all my might that people would see these photographs and realize we are care givers of an amazing world. There is beauty all around us and we only have to turn the television off and walk outside to see it. I want the opportunity to tell them that unless we, as the dominant species on this planet, make substantial changes to our resource consumption, there’s a very real possibility that our grandchildren will only know many of these species by photographs such as these.
