I hope everyone had a great weekend and Mother’s Day. We spent the day planting flowers and it was awesome…because my mom is awesome!
I will often go through these little mental exercises where I try to imagine all the stories of the world both past and present. In all honesty, it freaks me out a bit. It’s overwhelming to think we have our own story to tell that is just as cool as every other story being told. Billions of stories happening simultaneously. Each one as genuine as the next. The exercise feels a bit like Leibniz’s feeling he described about standing on the precipice of infinite greatness and infinite smallness (paraphrased). I wonder what this gentleman’s story is. I photographed him in a local Belizean market where he was trading vegetables with another farmer. Sure, we could say he is a framer…but life, his life, your life, our lives are much more than that.
