I have so many post it notes lining the perimeters of this book s pages that it looks like a textbook While a lot of the material in Chris s book is the kind of overview seasoned photographers would read, roll their eyes at and say, Yeah, yeah, yeahI know it all already , what they would miss is how much passion Chris puts into all his words, his art, not to mention how much he cares about others pursuing the art he loves so much There are lots of tidbits in here that made me wish I could take Chris out for coffee and a chat, but this is one that really spoke to me Chris talks about getting ready to get married and someone telling him to enjoy life pre marriage, because it s all downhill from here And another time, someone decided to give him a really nasty critique of some photos he was very proud of, telling him, You ll never make it far And this was the realization Chris had The advice stung both times It was an insult to who I am, how I love, how I live, and what I create I was at first infuriated Who do you think you are Then it dawned on me I repeated the word who and it all made sense I softened and was even a bit sad for these sorry souls I finally understood their advice was autobiographical They were telling me their story their marriage wasn t good, their photo career never left the ground As for me, I will never live someone else s drab and dreary life My time on Earth is my own And I will dream impossible dreams, I will love until it hurts, I will never give up and come hell or high water, I will find a way.
