I can’t publish this collection of work without acknowledging Tahl Ben-Yehuda’s remarkable encouragement, trust, and unending patience with me.

As a labor of love, and I am pleased beyond description to have been given the opportunity to create these images. This art says as much about me as does the content. No one is more critical of my work than myself, but atypically, I’m good here.

I believe that images are their own language, and as such, words just muddle up the message. I encourage you to feel these images as much as see them. There are truths, laughs, and love for the ages amongst them.

Mahalo nui loa, Tahl.

Please don’t take as long to bury me as I took to make these photographs.
