On evening just before Christmas I set off for Santa Monica pier to jump with both feet into capturing whatever I saw - kind of a Dawn photography bath if you will. With an open brief to myself and the freedom of an unfamiliar location, I had one of the most fruitful d...

So how did I start the collection? I was 15 and wandering around a v...
