WHY?
The great writer C.S. Lewis referred to this world as "The Shadowlands." He wrote in "The Last Battle" that this painful life is like the title page of a book being continually written; and that after death, comes the body of the book; a majestic eternity. As a photojournalist, I seek to experience the joys and the pain of those in my own "Shadowlands;" to live and think and laugh every day.

El escritor C.S. Lewis se refirio a este mundo como "La Tierra de las Sombras." El escribio que esta vida dolorosa es como la pagina de titulo de un libro que es continuamente escrito; y despues de nuestra muerte, viene el cuerpo del libro; una eternidad majestuosa. Como fotoperiodista, intento experimentar las alegrias y el dolor de esos en mi propia "Tierra de las Sombras; " para vivir y pensar cada dia.
