THROUGH THE LENS
Each photograph has two stories: The first is the photograph itself that captivates and transports the viewer into the image itself taking them on a journey as they put the pieces together and fill in the blanks. The second is the story that narrates its creation – the circumstances, conditions and challenges that went into bringing the image into reality. Von’s prerogative is to share these stories with the world, regardless if it’s through words, images or motion.
