A harrowing period of drug dependency had been interrupted by physical, emotional, and spiritual exhaustion. I found help in the rooms of this building.
I began to awaken to the simple beauty that was my neighborhood. I began to shift my gaze from the crack vials which littered the streets to the birds in the trees. I began to focus my camera on what I saw.
I had been tinted by grace through the support of my neighbors.
The subject of the photo is light, its absence and strength. The figure walks erect, eyes level, and with great purpose through shifting light , walking with grace, never wavering.
