I was asked to do a volunteer shoot at a local art event for at risk kids. A famous graffiti artist would be showing kids how to graffiti paint, and showing them that it can be art, not vandalism.
You can read about the event and view pictures of it on this blog post:
This portrait is the stand-out image of the day for me. I was fortunate to have my angle finder view adapter on my camera when this girl and I made a connection. Her expression, stance, really her whole being, has haunted me ever since. I printed this 24×36 and had it framed for my office wall.
I chose this image for the Steve Huff site because more than any of the 150,000 images I have taken in the past 10 years, this image is an inspiration to me. I know it is important to me and there is a photographic journey that awaits me. I’ll know it when I find it, just as I did when she and I looked at each other and the magic moment was captured.
