The computer screen really can’t do this photo justice, for which I apologize. This is my mom –– one of the strongest, most beautiful, courageous, and smartest people I know (or will ever know). Words can’t really do her justice. This is one of my favorite photographs I’ve ever made. It’s also a portrait as much of myself as it is of my mom, which I both love and hate about the photo. I have a lot more to say about this image, but I’ll spare you all for now.
