"The beauty of the photograph is the ability to affect people on an emotional level, bringing the viewer as close to the subject matter as they can get without being there. I try to capture the emotional aspects of events more than the actual details, and portraying a sense of mood of feeling in my images is essential. I hope that each of my images not only tell a story but tell it with grace and beauty."
~Zoriah, award winning photojournalist (zoriah.com)
