What Is Beyond Project

Throughout all my years as a photographer, I’ve always wanted to find a way to share the stories, details, and perspectives of the people in my photographs.  Every human being possesses a deep beauty, and I’m not referring to anything that exists on the surface.  We assume so much about someone before we truly get to know them and hear how their experiences have shaped the person they have become.  We stop at first impressions and arrive at conclusions based off of "pieces” that have been presented to us.  The truth is that a multitude of layers encompass our entire being.  At times we have trouble seeing past or through these layers, into the very essence of each person we encounter.  We tend to think we have someone figured out, but in actuality we have not dug deep enough.  The stories shared here span a wide range of topics, from a wide range of people.  The commonality you will find, is that there is an underlying current of soul or spirit that connects them all.  I believe that in sharing these stories, we can all find inspiration and stretch our perspective…to what is beyond.
