Arcadia Rom-Frank

This is the photo that made me a ‘photographer.’ After a series of disappointing events at a summer arts camp I doubted my passion for photography. But I stumbled upon a simple scene that compelled me. From this simple setting I made a photograph that I was excited to print. I was so happy with this picture that afterwards wherever I looked I saw photographs. I feel as if I know what to look for now that I made a “successful” photograph. I continue to look for that same burst of inspiration that came from that moment of frustration.
