"I photograph gently to allow the story to unfold in front of, within and beyond me. Capturing the light in these transitory spaces of time reveals the poetry of humanity, integrating elements to provide a heightened human relationship within a solitary moment. Through this alignment, a temporal moment becomes eternal."
-Michael M. Koehler
