Legacy Hands #Hospice

I receive a million times back what I give as a volunteer hospice photographer. ❤ This gentleman passed away several days after I photographed him and his bride of 60+ years. This is truly heartwork!


Join me as I guide visitors on a tour of the exhibition The Run-On of Time, the first museum retrospective of Eugene Richards‘s work, while sharing my own experiences as a photojournalist working in Rochester, New York.

For Donna <3 R.I.P. #BeautifulSoul

donna004-1Beautiful Soul

I have found something
within your gaze,
that more than moves me
in so many ways.
Something behind
those crystal eyes,
eyes more glorious
than the bluest skies.

I want to learn
all that I can,
not just to know
but to understand.
What caused you pain,
who gave you scars,
everything that has made you
the (wo)man that you are.

Like a child discovering
something new,
is the way that I feel
when I am with you.
This journey inside
your beautiful soul,
is taking me captive
as your story unfolds.

What is your Story?


Inspired by Rethink Homelessness, an initiative of the Central Florida Regional Commission on Homelessness, who recently asked a few homeless people to write down a fact about themselves that other people wouldn’t know just by walking past them. The Social Reportage class at Flower City Arts Center is doing just that, though not all are homeless, those being approached facilitate their basic needs by frequenting soup kitchens in the Rochester, NY area. These are some of the stories of our brothers and sisters.

The Soup Kitchen #LoopMinistries


Soup kitchens in America originated around 1929 when the effects of a growing depression began. The need for soup kitchens was felt even more so when the tailspin in the economy worsened in 1932, and 12 million Americans, about 25 percent of the normal labor force, were out of work. It is hard to believe the need for food pantries and supper programs is still great in the year 2017. LOOP Ministries relies on donations of food, time, talent and monetary supplements to sustain the demand  of hunger in Rochester, NY.
