I came to Martha’s Vineyard as a part-time resident nearly 10 years ago. Two years later, in 2010, I entered a treatment program for alcohol addiction. I lost nearly everything, including my family, my financial assets, and my soul. As part of my recovery and healing, I taught myself the workings of cameras and the process of “creating” images after learning of an individual who found the artistic process liberating and helpful with his severe depression. Photography has been a key to my sobriety. I consider myself an “inspirational photographer” and find photography a spiritual source of strength and healing. I write and attach words to postings on social media in an attempt to reduce stigma and encourage the seeking of help for those with addiction and mental health disease.
