Sometimes there is a ball of pain inside that grows and grows until it is unsustainable for the body to contain it. By cutting oneself, the emotional pain embraces physical pain and becomes more real. Seeing the wounds on one’s body brings the internal pain to the surface. As the wounds heal, the emotional pain also seems to heal. He’s better now.
I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is also an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Maxwell, and Nigel.
