Statement:

In 2010, I relocated to New York’s Hudson Valley in a search for personal and artistic growth. During this time I have developed a great fondness for this region, its beauty and history, and the deeply creative people who live here.

Through my job as a studio assistant, I have had the privilege of assisting some truly inspiring artists. I have learned from these individuals not only about art but also about kindness, about business, about meditation, about honesty, about the soil that we live on, and about the deep complexity and beauty of the human condition.

This work is meant to honor these people, to recognize the rich history of the land we live on, and to shed light on those who are creating here right now.

In this series the subjects are John Dugdale and Rey Clarke. John is blind. He is also a photographer. John is my mentor. John and Rey are partners. Rey is sighted. Rey is also an artist. John creates, exhibits, and publishes photographs with the help of Rey and other people close to him. They live in a farmhouse in Ulster County.

John’s story exemplifies the capacity and true potential of the human mind, especially when paired with the fire of a creative individual He has decided, no matter what the limitations, to never stop seeing.
