HIRE A VISION. NOT A SNAPPER.
THE ARI STUDIO - DC, NORTHERN VA & MARYLAND
I remember it as if it was yesterday -by the way, I am Ari, or Xavier if you dare to pronounce it-. I felt a magic scintillation. I tried to put in words, but couldn't.
By that time I had already lived in Spain, Chile and Oklahoma. I had struggled as a kid communicating with others. But when I picked up a camera for the first time, I found a new way of speaking. With a camera in my hand, I met hundreds of people, their homes, their journeys, the reasons for their tears and smiles.
Then it occurred to me. Lives, loves, aspirations, challenges run wild. So do people, places, light, lenses. But it all meets somewhere in the middle. There's a magic spark about discovering and crystallizing where all goes. It's about finding direction. In a second. Anyone can have a camera, but only a few have the vision. I bring you both.
