Fleeting moments aren’t going to wait and most won't ever happen again. The camera becomes an extension to the eye. However, the most important connection is between my eye and my creative mind because without that I would not have a personal vision and voice in my work.
I find myself comfortable and thriving off the spontaneity of life around me. For now, the freedom to see without constraints feels right. My street work today compared to a year ago is already a story in itself … I want my pictures to tell me where and what to photograph, not the other way around.
From the moment I released the image set, Mrs. Chapman immediately started sending me emails, regular mail and leaving me phone messages while crying for weeks … Mindy immediately knew what these images meant to her family legacy and had a heightened appreciation for the documentation of her daughter’s new life.
