Dive In

Sharing good news.

We all need encouragement from time to time.

Reassurance.

We need to know that what we make connects, in some way, with viewers and readers. It’s easy enough to say that I make these photographs for myself, and that is all that matters. But is it really? All that matters.

Of course not. Sharing and showing photographs is about belonging. It’s about finding those souls who want to see what you see and feel what you feel. It’s about needing to love and be loved.

I’m feeling the love today.

Two of my photographs were selected for the latest exhibition from Don’t Take Pictures, Dive In, on view May 22 — August 20.

By high dive, wading, or rope swing, however they enter the water, swimmers have been subject matter for photographers since the early days of the medium. Dive In is an online exhibition inspired by those who swim in waters shallow and deep. The water offers myriad reflections and distortions of the human from figure aimless floating to competitive backstroke. Whether poolside, seaside, or lake lounging, for this show Don’t Take Pictures presents photographs of swimmers.

Boys just wanna have fun
