"As a photographer, I want to stand out, I want to create well done, well thought out images that convey an essence. I am deeply grateful that you have looked at my work."
After experiencing a stroke at age 6, Cynthia has significant weakness on her left side and limited use of her left hand, with almost no fine motor control. Though photography often requires physical labor that is especially taxing for Cynthia, her passion for taking photographs empowers her. Photography is very much a meditative practice for Cynthia and allows her to transcend any difficulties she may face.
Cynthia’s outlook on the role of an astute photographer mirrors her inspiring perspective on life: “great subjects are everywhere and will reveal themselves if you are not only seeing and looking, but also feeling and being. Feeling is an inherent reaction that we can reframe for the viewer.”
