I’ve taken photos for as long as I can remember, as early as four years old judging by the pictures I still have. My interest in photography, and the magical chemical process of creating a ghostly negative and committing the image on it to a piece of paper, dovetailed with my other interests, primarily music, art and books. I’ve always been drawn to and captured by portraits, even without being aware of it or having a conscious thought about that when shooting.DON PYLE, SHOT IN A MIRROR
I said I would never protect you from my love.
