Drift 18 by Rowan Daly

I have experienced in life, as I feel everyone must, a kind of moment. Maybe it’s the sunlight breaking through the redwood canopy on a hike I never meant to take, or just the lingering glance of a captivating stranger. In these moments we are shown all of humanity, of time, of space, in an instant.

As an artist, I try to make my shutter click in these moments. I want to be able to see all the world in a photo, and for others see it too. Sometimes I’m lucky and I’m there in the moment. More often, I have to recreate it from memory.

I love what I do: creating a moment in which all things are connected and capturing it for all eternity, to be lived, and seen, and experienced time and time again. That feels like some kind of miracle. It feels like reason enough to do what I do.
