Photos by Chloe Krenz

I close my eyes and the darkness is illuminated by past experiences, vividly dancing across my eyelids in the form of shapes and colors. I open my eyes and focus on the minuet details that make each passing moment special. Recreating moments in time seems almost impossible but if revisited enough until I can grab my camera, I may be able to hold that moment in time forever, or at least the emotion of it.

As a photographer I have the unique duty of capturing the emotion of our time. I love the wrinkled faces, the messy hair, and the tears. If I can, for even a fleeting moment stir feelings of connectivity, of beauty in darkness, of love...

I have done my job.
