I have awful vision. My contacts are a -10, if that means anything. I can't read a newspaper unless its about 2 inches from my face. When I got glasses just before kindergarten, my world changed. I'm not even sure how I would function in society if I were born before glasses existed. I'd be totally lost. Now, I make my living with my eyes, as a cameraman in TV and video production. I've fallen in love with placing a frame around things in the world around you, and creating a moving, visual painting out of real life. I find it funny, and somehow fitting, and I'm not grateful enough for it. I'm excited everyday to explore new ways to capture and create things visually.
