Entry Description

Enchanted Forest is a collection of images of things I have seen walking through the forest. Most of the time, we only see what we expect to see, but standing in specific places at certain times, I was given a glimpse of what seems to be much more. Every one of these images is “true” in some sense. What is most true, is the “magic” leading up to their creation. Noticing the light comes first. Honoring that impulse by making the images comes next. Discovering a new world that flows from that act is the reward that awaits us in every moment, if we just make the effort to see differently.
