Happy/Sad:

The Happy/Sad collection is a great example of the power of being eyeball-to-eyeball.  The picture on the left is the moment I meet someone – you see the distance, sadness, and suspicion in their eyes. The photograph on the right is just a few seconds later after I make a funny raspberry sound with my mouth.

The photograph on the right is a result of making myself vulnerable, striping away filters, going outside of my bubble and creating an opportunity for real connection. All of us have the power to change a moment and make it meaningful. Just by making that funny sound with my mouth I opened up the opportunity for friendship.
