Finding ourselves can feel like a game of smoke and mirrors; trying one thing, failing and then trying ten more. By the time we’ve completed all these trials and errors, it can often seem bewildering. Peers, parents, leaders and teachers can all complicate the matter by telling us who they think we should be. It is acceptable to be uncertain of your future and not know all the answers, for in fact no one has all of the answers. The advice of others is indeed important, but never lose control of your own intuitions. God and you know yourself the best, and only in that relationship can you truly find your direction in life. We are very multifaceted beings; there are many depths to our labyrinthine souls. Take delight in knowing that you will always learn more about yourself, for you were created with more purpose than can ever be known.

I truly enjoyed getting to finally meet Zack Ahern, the model here; he has been a huge inspiration of mine since I began photography. I will miss our deep discussions that delved beyond just the surface of who we are! This was taken during my recent roadtrip across the U.S. in Oklahoma, on the way back from meeting 60 other artists!

To see photos from all the artists I recently traveled and met up with, check out LAFG 2013, you don’t want to miss out on all this inspiring collaborative work!
