About this photo: “I took this photo a few years ago during a dark time. During the editing session, I thought it captured the uncertainty about what lies ahead not just for this family, but for everyone in an age of global warming, income inequality and terrorism. It’s important to note that I have a more positive view of life on most occasions. But regardless of the ruling mood, I find that photography is wonderful therapy.”
