In 2011, I picked up a Canon Rebel T2i DSLR camera before setting off on my one-year study abroad program in Shanghai. I had no idea how pivotal a role the camera would play in shaping my experience of the world nor did I begin to understand how transformative the journey would be.
Ever since then, the synthesis of photography and travel has become the vehicle for which I explore and exhibit my thoughts and sentiments. How bewitching it is to know we live in an age in which we can revisit the idyllic past through the instruments of glass and light. To be able to experience and capture the ever tragic nature of our fleeting existence… there is nothing more beautiful than this.
Thanks for joining me on this wondrous voyage. It’s a pleasure to have you with me. Let’s get going now. Adventure won’t find itself!
Your friend, Jon
