“What I Stand For Is What I Stand On.”

  • Wendell Berry

The Earth and its interconnected web of life is what is most important to me on how I vote….not the f…..ing economy. The Inflation Reduction Act — which, despite its name, is mainly a climate bill with a side helping of health reform — didn’t receive a single Republican vote. Now, the I.R.A. isn’t a leftist plan to insert Big Government into everyone’s lives: It doesn’t coerce Americans into going green; it relies on subsidies to promote low-emission technologies, probably creating many new jobs. The Republican Party has turned strongly anti-environmental over time. That is why I vote Democratic and you should too if you care at all about the health of our environment and global climate change. For your own health as well as the future health and well-being of your children and grandchildren vote candidates that support our plant and lives.

Two photographers

Each in their own world

Where will we go next?

Inspired by Henri Cartier-Bresson who viewed photography as capturing a decisive moment.

“To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as of a precise organization of forms which give that event its proper expression.”
