It’s odd how often we take for granted our roots to all of what we are today. For many years, I genuinely believed my first interaction with photography as I know it was at 14 years old. However, that is not the case.

Recently, I was lucky to find prints of photos I had taken with a disposable camera at about 7-8 years old. I had completely forgotten about taking these photos and finding them brought back to life my memory of those moments.

The photos might not have been taken for any purpose other than being things I found interesting at the time. They aren’t anything special.

But, what fascinates me about these photos is how similar their style and composition are to my own photography today.

In a way, they are proof that I’ve always had a deep liking for photography. It’s an art that I’ve always had unconsciously within me. 

They are a part of my roots.
