back in nyc now. still here for 6 more days. its drizzling outside.

met w/ stephen mayes last week. he’s an incredibly smart, kind and insightful person. he gave me an hour of his time to look at my work. the meeting was more similar to a palm reading. in the sense that i didnt have to say much and stephen could read everything from my images.

i learned a great deal in that one hour. the main point i got from the meeting is that there is a tremendous amount that i still have to learn. the one question that keeps in my mind, “what are you trying to say?” and i keep playing it in my head over and over.

i thought i had clear a idea of where and what i wanted to say. stephen just turned everything upside down, in an amazingly refreshing way. so he didnt pull out the vii membership contract for me to sign, but he did give me an abundance of things to think about and work on.

    Hi, I’m Hannah’s boss and I love your photos! What kind of camera/ lens do you use? I already have a camera/ lens that I love but I’m always curious what other people use. You don’t have to tell me, but thought I’d ask anyway. 🙂
