(March 30th, 2014)

That scene from Dead Poets Society, where the Keating’s class looked at pictures of past students. The phrase “Carpe Diem”, has unfortunately been so overused, it has lost its allure. But those pictures in the glass cases, strong reminder that we sometimes are not alone in our journey in life, we sometimes walk with greatness and destiny, even for a moment.

Sometimes a photographer gets to try to recreate that same feeling of destiny and moment, hoping that some 150 years from now, someone would be able to look at a set of photos, and say “that is a great group of people together, wish I was there too”.

The University of Houston School of Theater and Dance class of Spring 2014 gave me that opportunity. Great group of people. Many thanks to them for allowing me to be part of their moment.
