After a disheartening conversation with a fashion photographer, I decided I would forget photography as a profession and enroll in the nearest nursing program. I thought my mother would be thrilled, but when I told her she seemed disappointed. “You will still have to work, you know,” she told me. The thing is, I really do want to take anatomy and physiology. I want to know more about how the human body and the natural world works. I know that my photography can only benefit with more knowledge. I am already exploring themes of diabetes and peoples relationship to desserts. I am hungry for more information! I will keep moving in the direction I am being called, and trust it will be worth the uncertainty.
