“Right now is good, and that’s all that matters.” – Guy Tal
In a fortuitous turn of events, albeit with risks and conscious decision-making, I have been able to live and work in the Adirondack mountains since the summer of 2021. All the above images and words have been a quiet outpour of living and experiencing this place with increasing immersion.
With heartfelt thanks to Guy Tal, whose work and life has been an inspiration to pursue artistic independence and authenticity. You can find more of his work here: https://guytal.com/.
And deep gratitude to Suvro Sir, whose life and teachings have enlightened me in every step of the way. The quote “What is death but a long and vivid holiday” from the poem Swimmers by Louis Untermeyer is just one example of what I remember because this person uttered these words in the most captivating way in English lessons, thousands of miles away and more than a decade ago.

A scientist in training, an artist in yearning, I am trying to understand the good life worth living. Being able to experience Nature more intimately for the last few years in upstate New York and having the company of a wonderful life partner has enabled my creative expressions through photography and writing, and which, I hope, will be my living someday.
