It is about the moment when a photographer and a model begin a relationship that is as intimate as that between a mother and child. It is about the creation of space to house those moments. It is about the creation of the image from light to negative to print to viewer.
This building is about light. it is about the way light is framed. It is about the way photographs are records of light. It is about how humans see light and experience light and live in the light. It is about controlling and channeling the power of light. It is about harnessing the awesome power of light.
This building is about growth. It is about a place from my past growing into an idea for the future. It is about my own growth as a person - physically, intellectually, and professionally. It is about the growth of a passion for photography and architecture in a way that I can share.
