“I’m not out there to make another great picture. I’m really out there to feel what it feels like to be alive and conscious in that moment. In a sense, the record of my photographs is a record of moments of consciousness and awareness that have come to me in my life.”

-Joel Meyerowitz

I shoot with a Fuji X100s, Fuji Xt1 and Fuji Xt3 and I wear comfortable shoes.
