SELECTED IMAGE FOR GALLERY SHOWING ABOVE – FULL ROLL BELOW
ABOUT THE SELECTED IMAGE: When given the task of photographing my perspective of health in the Galveston community, my mind immediately went to the historic importance of corner stores juxtaposed to the current food deserts in which many of our residents reside. Thus, a majority of my photos were of corner stores, most were of buildings, and nearly all were absent of humans and emotions surprising given the fact that I’m a psychologist. When taking one of my photos, the couple in the picture asked what I was doing and asked if they could be part of the project. That’s when it hit me. Not only have I spent my career researching relationships, I routinely make the case that a healthy relationship is essential to a happy and healthy life. We need food, shelter, and healthcare to survive. We need relationships to live. Click here to view all of his photos.
