Contrasting new & old.



Recently I had the opportunity to create the two images above for Glencoe Regional Health Services marketing materials.  These two above shots are amongst my favorites from the day long shoot.  If I dig deep into my reasoning for picking these, it is about contrast.  Contrasting a newborn and a  94 year old woman.  When I look at the baby with fresh skin, yet untouched by years of hard work, I know that there are many stories yet to be written.  In contrast, the deep creases and weather worn skin of years on the farm, reveal a reality that many stories have been lived and could be shared.  There is great beauty in the young and old, in the fresh and the worn,  and I am humbled to be given the privilege  to capture the contrast in photographs.

It is our turn as a generation to create stories to tell.  Go make some history!

Best wishes,
