Let me tell you a story. It’s about the life I lead and would lead if I were someone, somewhere or somewhen else. And that’s why I’m a storyteller, because I always wonder what’s around the corner, over the next mountain, or just in front of me but hidden. I use words and my camera to explore what I want to understand and what I need to communicate. As for exploring, I’ve been on assignment as a writer and photographer for many major publications to all seven continents. I’ve interviewed and photographed hundreds of fascinating or famous (or both) people. And, I’ve been honored that my work has received numerous awards, grants and accolades. But in the end, for me it’s all about making a connection with other people. (For more traditional bios, please go to http://www.grotta.net/events.htm
