18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
The Darkest Light

When I look at this photo, I can remember how dark my personal life was. I was struggling with a lot. But creating this photo was my light. An escape, but yet…it was still my reality at the same time. A beautiful moment in time. As artists, we have to create in order to survive. That is our purpose on this earth. That is my light. This is my light. My darkest light.
