I will be giving away photographs.
I have hundreds of prints I’ve made and I will enjoy making more.
I want you to have some.
Have you tried to sell photographs these days? I want what I make to be owned and loved and touched and seen. So I’ll give them to you.
I’ll mail them. Deliver in person when possible.
