“For many people, imagination is their only escape from circumstance. When one lives in a world quick to snuff out wonder and promise, it becomes necessary to create your own. My images are the world as I choose to see it. They are my acknowledgements of, but refusals to submit to an increasingly divided society. They are my reminders that even in difficult times, beauty endures.” — Benjamin Pierce
