Touching Strangers: Richard Renaldi

A Silent Conversation: David Urbanke

Aldous Huxley said, “Experience is not what happens to a man.  It is what a man does with what happens to him.” For eighteen-year-old David Urbanke , that particular “happening” was receiving a Canon Rebel XTi as a gift at the age of 12.

Tanja Hollander Asks: “Are You Really My Friend?”

“I continue to be surprised by the number of people, especially (the real life) strangers, who have opened their homes to me – offering me a place to stay, sharing their lives, their stories, their food, and their families while allowing my camera to document it all.” – Tanja Hollander Social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, or […]
